Program Overview: Modeled after Project
ECHO®, the Mountain West AIDS Education and Training Center hosts weekly interactive video
conferences that connect providers in rural and underserved areas with HIV expert knowledge and support.
Participating multidisciplinary care teams and providers interact with HIV specialists, gain expertise in
care for people living with HIV, and receive real-time recommendations and guidance for their cases. Through
this model, participants develop relationships with their peers across the ECHO network, building capacity
on the ground through a peer-to-peer network. The Mountain West AETC provides continuing education credits
for physicians, nurses, psychologists, and social workers via the University of Washington.
