Resource Provides Virtual to Rural and Remote Health Care Providers

The Rural Telementoring Training Center (RTTC) supports the delivery of effective, high-quality telementoring programs that expand access to care, build cultural proficiency, and improve the quality of health care in rural America. Telementoring, or technology-enabled mentoring, is the use of telecommunication technology to deliver training, education, and support that builds healthcare capacity.

The RTTC helps rural and remote health care providers deliver compassionate, evidence-based care. The RTTC offers free training and technical assistance to organizations for designing, delivering, and evaluating telementoring programs in any of six modalities: Project ECHO, online modules and curricula, webinars, community health clubs, individual consultation, and podcasts.

Rural and remote health care providers connect with educational resources and a network of learning, mentors, and partners helps to grow skills and deliver a new level of care; receive ongoing, interactive learning; network with other professionals; collaborate across disciplines and professions; reduce isolation; and improve patient access to health services.

The RTTC helps to build the rural health care infrastructure thereby ensuring access to high quality care and is part of the movement that is transforming rural health through telementoring
