Overview

Project EchoECHO MS increases the capacity of neurologists and other healthcare providers to diagnose and manage individuals with multiple sclerosis. This CME program follows Project ECHO’s evidence-based tele-mentoring model and establishes a peer-to-peer knowledge sharing network. Each ECHO MS session features a brief didactic and two case discussions. The goal of ECHO MS is to improve overall health outcomes for individuals with MS.

ECHO MS (adult neurology)

ECHO MS provides 12 CMEs and is a dynamic professional learning community for neurologists and other healthcare providers. The ECHO MS cohort begins in September and ends in March. The 60 minute virtual sessions take place twice a month and meet during the lunch hour. A Hub Team of experts review relevant MS information and participants present cases for discussion. The result is a high-yield learning experience that promotes collaboration between academic MS centers and general neurology providers.
