We will offer a graduate ECHO series for the past participants of the Depression and Anxiety cohorts. This will allow you to continue building knowledge with advanced educational didactics, bring any mental health cases (not just those pertaining to depression or anxiety) to be discussed and followed longitudinally with direct consultative support from psychiatrists and learn tools and obtain resources to manage the medical components of mental health care. This series will not require a commitment; participants may drop-in to any topic/session they choose. Curriculum may be adjusted based on needs, and topics will be repeated periodically, but cases are new and unique to each session. This Graduate Series is offering an opportunity for participants to conduct quality improvement (QI) efforts in their practice. This QI initiative is voluntary and will require an additional time commitment outside of the ECHO sessions. Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 4 points may be available to physicians who participate in the QI effort.
