Cochrane Scholars Program

2016 Cochrane Colloquium
Systematic Review Training
October 21-25, 2016
Seoul, South Korea

Sponsored by 

The AAO-HNS/F leadership and SAGE, publisher of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery, have identified a need to train otolaryngologists in the conduct and publication of systematic literature reviews. Systematic reviews have a high citation impact, and serve as the foundation for evidence-based practice guidelines, clinical performance measures, and maintenance of specialty certification.

Two travel grants of up to $4,000 will be offered to attend the 2016 Cochrane Colloquium in Seoul, South Korea, October 21-25, 2016. The Colloquium features a full scientific program and nearly 60 training and discussion workshops related to systematic review.  In return for a travel grant to attend the meeting, grant recipients must agree to initiate and submit a systematic review to Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery for publication consideration within 12 months (by October 25, 2017).

Attendees will be introduced to the Cochrane Collaboration, the world leader in evidence summaries of healthcare interventions, and  will learn state-of-the-art techniques for producing systematic reviews and meta-analyses.*
