Fringe event for students and trainees

The day before the Cochrane Colloquium, Saturday 15th September 2018, Cochrane UK will be hosting a ‘Fringe Event’ for trainees (of any speciality) and students (of any discipline) interested in evidence-based health care. It will take place at the Edinburgh International Convention Centre, from 9:30am – 5:00pm.
