Oregon ECHO Network is tele-mentoring program education for providers to learn about complex conditions, such as: Hepatitis C, Diabetes, pain management and substance use disorder. Through this program, Oregon health care professionals use videoconferencing to connect with specialists for multi-week interactive learning sessions. Expert presenters share their knowledge and clinicians bring their tough cases to get feedback from their peers and specialists. Programs are always free and most offer no-cost continuing education credits.
Please see this link for available program opportunities.
If you are outside of Oregon, find an ECHO program near you.
