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.

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 7, 2016).

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.*

Application submission for 2015 is closed. Check back with us in August for information on the 2016 Cochrane Scholars Program.
