New Web Seminar Series -

Evidence Based Medicine: Basics and Beyond

This series is especially for new clinicians, fellows and trainees. The series aims to teach the basics of evidence based medicine and to teach clinicians how to use EBM for best practice. Evidence from trials and Cochrane Neonatal reviews will inform the sessions. We're using a new workshop model to engage participants.

The series is funded through an AAP Section on Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Strategic Plan Grant and by our partners at Vermont Oxford Network.
