Public health professionals interested in becoming preceptors are cordially invited to participate in the Public Health Preceptor ECHO, sponsored by the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health, with faculty from OHSU-PSU, OSU, and state and local public health agencies.
What Is ECHO?
ECHO is a tele-mentoring program that uses videoconferencing technology to combine brief expert presentations with interactive and practical case presentations from participants. The overall goal of ECHO programming is to build new capacity for care at the community level.
Focus of This ECHO
The purpose of this 6-session ECHO is to develop more confident public health preceptors who are better equipped to support public health students through an applied practice experience resulting in increased opportunities for students to explore a career with underserved populations. We also aim to build leadership skills and increased job satisfaction of preceptors. Topics will include:
- Internship logistics between academic institution and host site
- Scoping and managing a project
- Best practices and skills for giving and receiving feedback
- Orienting learners to local and state public health context – including historical context
Benefits of participation include:
- No cost to you or your facility
- No-cost CPH credits
- The opportunity to present your tough scenarios and receive feedback from a multidisciplinary team of specialists and your peers
