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 2017 Cochrane Colloquium will take place Sept. 12-16, 2017 in Cape Town, South Africa as part of the Cochrane's Global Evidence Summit.
Award: Two annual award recipients will receive a travel grant of up to $3,000 to attend the 2017 Cochrane Colloquium to learn state-of-the-art techniques for producing high-quality systematic reviews. 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 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.
