Delve into a diverse range of sessions and engaging activities, fueling your knowledge and expanding your professional network in the world of evidence-based healthcare.

Exciting sessions relevant to students and early career professionals: 

  • Putting evidence into practice - A satellite event for students and healthcare professionals: A half-day event on the Sunday ahead of the Colloquium. Learn about Cochrane Reviews, evidence-based practice, fraudulent research and trustworthy evidence. This interactive event is for students and healthcare professionals from any healthcare discipline that feels there is a gap in their current skill set. You may register just for this event or add this event to your colloquium experience. 
  • Meet the Cochrane CEO and Editor-in-Chief - Networking doesn't get any more exciting than this! Meet some of the top people in Cochrane, ask questions, and interact in a casual environment. 
  • Meet the Author Journey Lead - Find out more about how to propose a new or updated review, and what the topic experts that consider proposals are looking for.

  • Library of People - Just like a regular library where you check out books, come along to speak to someone you wouldn’t normally meet and listen to their story.

This is just a small section of the diverse programming offered at Cochrane London. There are plenty of short oral sessions, longer plenary sessions, posters, social events, and workshops. Over three days you will be able to immerse yourself in the latest advancements in systematic review methodology and network with the leading experts in evidence-based medicine.
