Online Support for MAT Providers

TeleECHO Classes

Project ECHO links expert specialist teams at an academic hub with primary care clinicians in local communities. Primary care clinicians, the spokes in our model, become part of a learning community, where they receive mentoring and feedback from specialists. Together, they manage patient cases so that patients get the care they need.

These online classes use a simple videoconferencing technology to con-nect your healthcare team to a community of learners.

If you are a new provider interested in starting a MAT Program or an exist-ing MAT provider wanting to learn more start with:
