Project ECHO is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that both revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care doctors, nurses, and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.
GCAM is a scholarship opportunity for geriatrics-focused faculty in institutions other than HSC who are interested in earning a Graduate Certificate in Academic Medicine.
