Systematic Review Workshop

Samueli Institute is pleased to offer a three-day Systematic Review Workshop on Friday, Feb. 21 – Sunday, Feb. 23, 2013, at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). Experts in the field will teach participants the precise methodology of conducting a systematic review, the gold-standard approach for integrating evidence-based information and assessing research gaps in health care.

Participants are asked to bring a proposed review project to the workshop as they will be given the opportunity to work on their reviews through several hands-on exercises and receive individual mentorship on their specific projects. A review team may also enroll and work on a group project.
