IC@N Project ECHO

Integrated Care at NEOMED (IC@N)

About IC@N

A virtual learning community for continuing education, professional consultation and video-mentoring.

(jump to section on continuing education credits)

IC@N exists to support and enhance the integration of primary and mental health care by creating an interprofessional virtual learning community where the workforce has an opportunity to learn collaboratively and improve the health and quality of life for clients and families they serve. Integrated primary and mental health care is shown to reduce burnout and enhance professional satisfaction, while Project ECHO offers clinicians a sense of professional community and reductions in feelings of professional isolation and increased abilities and confidence for managing complex cases.

IC@N is based on the Project ECHO model for distance learning and consultation developed at the University of New Mexico. Project ECHO has been a great success with the clinicians who use it. Project ECHO combines the best elements of grand rounds, learning communities and telemedicine consultations.

IC@N sessions take place every Friday at noon, EST. Sessions are online using the Zoom videoconferencing platform for an interactive community experience. IC@N services are FREE. We would love for you to join us! Reach us at
