"Attending the Cochrane Colloquium provided a unique appreciation for the scientific value of a properly conducted systematic review. The Colloquium was far more than a one-time experience in that I left with an entirely new skill set, as well as resources for both writing and critiquing systematic reviews. More importantly, Cochrane fostered a collegial environment with statisticians, epidemiologists, clinicians, and my fellow AAO-HNS colleagues. In doing so, I walked away with valuable relationships from which enjoyable, successful collaborations are certain to ensue!"
