The application consists of a typed, single page (no smaller than 12-point font) description of previous experience with systematic reviews/evidence-based medicine and how this scholarship would contribute to the career goals of the applicant.  The ideal candidate is a junior faculty member, though mid-career faculty and fellows will also be considered.
