Otology & Neurotology Cochrane Scholarships

The journal Otology & Neurotology is seeking applications for 2 Cochrane scholarships. Funds ($4000 per scholarship) will be provided to attend one or more Cochrane course in the US or Europe. Following completion of the course(s), the scholar will be expected to contribute a Cochrane-equivalent review or meta-analysis (topic of the scholar’s choice) suitable for publication in O&N. After publication of the review, scholars will then be invited to join the Editorial Board of O&N to assist with editorial review of similar types of manuscripts submitted for publication.

The application consists of a typed, single page (no smaller than 12 point font) description of how this scholarship would contribute to the career goals of the applicant.

IFOS 2021 Vancouver
The unprecedented events over the past nine months have challenged all of us, including the committee organizing IFOS 2021 Vancouver. The local organizing committee, the IFOS Board, and the Canadian Society of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery have been assessing the ongoing global pandemic and its potential impact on you as attendees, your families, and your communities.

While we look forward to showcasing Vancouver, we have made the difficult decision to postpone IFOS 2021 Vancouver. It will now be IFOS 2022 Vancouver from June 18 - 22, 2022. Attendees can expect the same great educational and social meeting in 2022. More information can be obtained from our website in early 2021. https://twitter.com/ifosvancouver
