AAD Cochrane Scholarship
This award program is founded on the goal of expanding the training in — and reach of — evidence-based medicine in dermatology.
Date and location: The 2020 Cochrane Colloquium will take place Oct. 4-7, 2020, Toronto, Canada.
Award: Two annual award recipients will receive a travel grant of up to $4,500 to attend the 2020 Cochrane Colloquium. Upon return from the meeting, award recipients will be required to develop a systematic review in a dermatology area that will support AAD clinical guideline development, or update and highlight areas for future dermatologic basic and clinical research. This review will also be submitted for consideration of publication in JAAD and should be completed within 12-18 months following the colloquium.
Awardees will also be introduced to the Cochrane Skin Group to internationally network with other individuals committed to developing systematic reviews related to dermatology.
Submit applications via the "Apply now" button below.
The Clinical Guidelines Committee will select two awardees.
Awardees will be notified April 2020.
