The AAD created the AAD Cochrane Scholarship to promote training in evidence-based medicine and expand its reach in the field of dermatology.

Attendees will learn state-of-the-art techniques for producing high-quality systematic reviews and develop their own systematic review upon their return. Award recipients also will be introduced to the Cochrane Skin Group, providing them with opportunities for international networking.

AAD members and graduating residents from the US and Canada are invited to apply for the Cochrane Scholarship. The submission deadline is October 30, 2015.

More information is available on the “Awards, grants and scholarships” section of the Academy’s website,
