Get Involved with AAO-HNSF Clinical Practice Guidelines: Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) Conference Scholars Program

Through the G-I-N Scholars program, the AAO-HNSF will fund up to five AAO-HNS members to attend next year's G-I-N Conference, providing an opportunity for eligible physicians to enrich their understanding of guideline development, dissemination, and implementation. G-I-N aims to encourage partnerships and foster work in the guidelines community, thus supporting evidence-based health care and improved health outcomes throughout the world. 


Receiving a G-I-N Scholar award entails a commitment to collaborate with the AAO-HNSF by serving as either a panel member or assistant chair (depending on experience level) on an upcoming guideline panel, enabling recipients to obtain hands-on guideline development experience. G-I-N Scholars also agree to submit a commentary to Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery about a specific aspect of clinical practice guidelines (e.g. development, dissemination, adaptation, implementation, etc.) within three months of publication of the clinical practice guideline.*

•    Applicants must be members of the AAO-HNS
•    Residents are not eligible to apply
•    Previous G-I-N or Cochrane Scholar recipients may apply if three years have passed and all of their prior obligations were met
