Education of community partners and ongoing dissemination of knowledge is an integral component of academia. Project ECHO is a novel learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and its ongoing delivery. TeleECHO™ links primary care clinicians and other providers, through a knowledge network, with an interprofessional team of specialists from an academic medical center; where expert mentors can educate and guide each other via case-based learning coupled with brief didactics. A mock ECHO session offers clinicians the freedom to learn in a non-critical environment, emphasizing real-time multidirectional feedback and encouraging knowledge and skill transfer. This session will equip participants with the ability to initiate a Project ECHO at their home institution.

Learning Objectives
– Describe the anatomy of an ECHO Project.
– Compare and contrast the benefits of traditional CME programs with ECHO programs.
– Brainstorm areas in their field where a Project ECHO would enhance learning and patient care in their communities.

Dr. David Noga, MD

Resident, University Hospitals

He became interested in addiction treatment as an undergraduate student attending the University of Michigan and taking a course entitled Behavioral And Social Foundations For The Health Professions where he learned about the enormous  morbidity and mortality associated with substance use.  He then went on to Rush Medical College in Chicago for his medical training.While in medical school, David volunteered at Cook County Jail, the largest single site jail in the U.S., working with an addictionologist to create a substance-abuse education and intervention program for detainees screened for problematic substance use at the time of their arrest. While Cook County’s IRB was pending approval for gathering data for the needs and effectiveness of the program, a social worker was hired to implement the program and the jail subsequently offered their first MAT treatment option of Vivitrol to detainees. David continues his interest for substance use disorders and hopes to treat dual diagnosis patients in the future.
