VUMC Seeking Clinicians who Currently Care for Adults with IDD for Project

Posted by on Sunday, May 19, 2024 in Internships and Applications.

**** Applications Now Open Through June ****

Are you a clinician caring for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD)? If yes, the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) has an opportunity for you to enhance your skills and improve patient outcomes. 

Join experienced clinicians at VUMC who have developed an ECHO I/DD training program designed to foster an all-teach/all-learn environment. The program will consist of live video-conferencing sessions that meet twice a month for an hour for six months, starting in May 2024.

By participating in this program, you will not only enhance your skills but also be compensated for your valuable time. Moreover, the sessions will count for CME, adding to your professional development. The sessions will include managing co-occurring medical and psychiatric conditions, supporting adults with I/DD in the clinic, housing, and community support, supporting families/caregivers, post-secondary education and employment, and more. 

Wellpoint sponsors this project, and clinicians who accept Wellpoint insurance are eligible to participate. For more information, please get in touch with Dr. Beth Malow, the Vanderbilt site director, at, or see the flyer below.
