Patient Case Presentation Training
Have you ever attended an ECHO clinic and learned something valuable from a case that one of your peers presented for consultation? Believe it or not, that form of case-based learning is far superior to any didactic presentation you’ll probably sit through, but we need a continuous stream of case submissions from providers like you to maintain momentum. Would you be interested and willing to submit cases if you knew a little more about the process? If so, you’re in luck because we have a Special Series clinic lined up for you on February 23rd that is entirely focused on the case presentation process. If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Project ECHO, Changing the World Fast
The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine was one of the first to adopt Project ECHO—an innovative project pioneered in New Mexico by Dr. Sanjeev Arora of the University of New Mexico. Please watch this two minute animated video of the ECHO model to learn more.
What Is Project ECHO?
Project ECHO is an innovative health care delivery solution pioneered in New Mexico by Dr. Sanjeev Arora and has now been replicated by over 40 sites worldwide. The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine was early to adopt Project ECHO, with only Washington, and urban Chicago replicating sooner. ECHO is a simple telehealth linkage connecting university-based faculty specialists to primary care providers in rural and under-served areas to extend specialty care to patients with chronic, costly, and complex medical illnesses.
The goal of Project ECHO Nevada is to meet the needs of primary care providers by offering an alternative to costly travel and long waits for patients who need specialty care.
Learn more about how Project ECHO benefits Nevadans across the state.
University-based faculty specialists and community specialists lead a variety of clinics. Project ECHO clinics are open to primary care providers at all levels and include CME/CE for participants who complete the evaluation form after each clinic.
