ECHO Zoom sessions allow the individual clinician to get virtual face-to-face time with a specialist (such as a hepatologist or infectious disease). You fill out a simple form ahead of time so the specialist can review it, then you basically just read off your own data as you present your case. It is very informal and supportive, no pressure whatsoever. You do not have to present a case, you can simply attend and learn. It is also an easy way to get free CME credit.
