The Upstate multidisciplinary OBGYN ECHO education program connects specialists functioning in a variety of roles supporting and caring for patients in the perinatal period and beyond across the continuum of care. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from experts in the field and discuss case examples in an all-teach, all-learn, inclusive, supportive environment. A diverse group of OBGYN-related topics and experts in the field will populate the OBGYN ECHO education calendar. The goal of this OBGYN ECHO Series is to bring together clinicians working in the OBGYN field to learn from each other about important, timely education topics including case-based learning discussions.
