The Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership is proud to offer an innovative and much needed seminar series aimed at teaching our rural physicians leadership skills and supporting their wellness. This curriculum has been designed in partnership with Maine rural physicians.

This brand-new curriculum will:
• Strengthen the ability to see behaviors and norms in a larger system perspective, through data, analytics, and purposeful inquiry.
• Enhance leadership through advocacy and influence.
• Explore resilience and how you can be a role model and catalyst for effective self-care among colleagues, patients, and community members.
• Build a dynamic and supportive community through partnerships and collaborations.
• Offer focus and strategies on mitigating health inequities and implicit bias.
• Create an interdependent, sustainable learning community beyond the duration of the initial course using the ECHO™ model.

Project ECHO™ is a disease management approach that aims to increase knowledge among providers and standardize best practices for the screening, care, and treatment of a disease. ECHO™ is built on a core principle of case-based learning, wherein clinicians and healthcare providers from various sites attend a teleconference meeting hosted by a central “hub” team to present individual cases, consult with a multidisciplinary team of specialists, and learn from the cases presented by other providers. Case discussions are highly interactive, capitalizing on the insights of an interdisciplinary team of attendees in the hub and spokes. ECHO™ sessions offer the opportunity to build a dynamic community of guided practice.
