Welcome to the Department of Medical Education at ECHN! ECHN was formed in 1995 when Manchester Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital joined as partners and serves 19 towns in eastern Connecticut. By bringing together the experience and resources of all ECHN health care facilities, we are able to invest more in state-of-the-art medical technologies, provide more convenient access to a wider range of health care services, and continue to exceed the expectations of the patients and communities we serve. 

ECHN offers diverse clinical material in a variety of settings: inpatient, outpatient and sub-acute. Whether a resident, intern, medical student, or physician assistant student we will do our best to optimize your learning experience at our clinical campuses. 

If you are an ECHN physician, one of our residents, interns, students or a prospective resident or intern, we welcome your questions, comments or suggestions at any time. Please feel free to contact us.
