The HIV/AIDS TeleECHO Clinic unites a multidisciplinary team of HIV experts with healthcare providers treating HIV patients in rural and underserved areas. Individual cases are presented by the treating provider and discussed by the group to provide consultative advice on the management of HIV patients. Relevant peer-reviewed articles and resources are circulated to participants to enhance their knowledge base, and CME/CEU credits are provided. The clinic meets weekly on Tuesdays at 12:15 PM (MT). Providers are welcome to participate as much or as little as appropriate to your schedule and needs.
