ECHO offers a virtual network of real-time access to experienced experts through interactive case-based learning. Through the use of a hub and spoke model, ECHO gives participants the opportunity to take an active role in rich dialogue with the hub team (subject matter experts) and with their fellow spokes (participants) in an interdisciplinary teaching and learning environment. Each session includes a brief lecture, de-identified case presentation, and open discussion facilitated by the hub team.
