Enrollment is now open at no cost for the curriculum year starting in September 2020.
Weitzman ECHO Complex Integrated Pediatrics connects primary care medical and behavioral health providers nationally with a multidisciplinary team of specialists in complex pediatric care. The Complex Integrated Pediatrics clinic uses twice-monthly videoconferencing sessions to explore a variety of topics designed to improve the quality of care and clinical outcomes for underserved children and adolescents. Experts from Community Health Center, Inc. and rotating guest specialists present on key issues and provide recommendations on challenging cases posed by participants. The clinic is designed to emphasize the integration and collaboration between medical and behavioral health providers, reducing variations in care. Participants develop new clinical competencies and confidence with complex pediatric cases. The one year curriculum addresses topics such as asthma management and treatment, obesity, diabetes, substance use disorders, and autism.
This program aims to:
