Get Involved with AAO-HNSF Clinical Practice Guidelines: 2014 G-I-N Conference Scholars Program

Through the G-I-N Scholars program, the AAO-HNSF will fund two AAO-HNS members ($3,500 each) to attend the annual Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) Conference in Melbourne, Australia, providing an opportunity for eligible physicians to enrich their understanding of guideline development, dissemination, and  implementation. G-I-N aims to encourage partnerships and foster work in the guidelines community, thus supporting evidence-based health care and improved health outcomes throughout the world.  

Application and Requirements

Receiving a G-I-N Scholar award entails a commitment to collaborate with the AAO-HNSF by serving as either a panel member or assistant chair (depending on experience level) on an upcoming guideline panel, enabling recipients to obtain hands-on guideline development experience.  G-I-N Scholars also agree to submit a commentary to Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery about a specific aspect of the clinical practice guideline (e.g. development, dissemination, adaptation, implementation, etc.) within three months of publication of the clinical practice guideline.*
