Third-year resident Hadar Lev-Tov, M.D., M.A.S., was awarded the highly competitive American Academy of Dermatology Cochrane Scholarship.

Founded on the goal of expanding the training in—and reach of—evidence-based medicine in dermatology, the AAD Cochrane scholarship awards two recipients with travel grants of up to $3000 to attend the annual Cochrane Colloquium, which takes place this year October 21-25 in Seoul, South Korea. The Colloquium covers state-of-the-art techniques for producing high-quality systematic reviews. Scholarship awardees are introduced to the Cochrane Skin Group to internationally network with other individuals committed to developing systematic reviews related to dermatology, and return from the Colloquium to develop a systematic review in an area that supports clinical guideline development, or updates and highlights areas for future dermatologic basic and clinical research.

Dr. Lev-Tov will be presented with a commemorative award at the Stars of the Academy Reception during the AAD’s annual meeting, March 3-7, 2017 in Orlando, FL.

Originally from Nazareth Illit, Israel, Dr. Lev-Tov completed undergraduate education at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and Hunter College, medical school and residency at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a research fellowship at University of California Davis. His research has included the use of low-level light therapy as a potential therapy to treat scars and other proliferative skin diseases, evaluation of diabetic foot ulcer therapies, and the use of topical beta-blockers for chronic venous leg ulcers. Dr. Lev-Tov is currently participating in the Montefiore Einstein Dermatology Residency Program, where he is interested in comparative effectiveness research for dermatological applications.

Dr. Lev-Tov's resident research project titled "Epidemiology and Treatment of Angiolymphoid Eyperplasia with Eosinophilia" was published in the January 2016 issue of Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (JAAD). Additionally, he was one of ten dermatology residents recently chosen for the National Society for Cutaneous Medicine's Resident of Distinction Award.

"Dr. Lev-Tov has been an able medical education senior resident who has done an outstanding job supervising the students and house officers who take our general dermatology elective," said Dr. Steven Cohen, Chief of the Division of Dermatology. "His numerous accomplishments at this early stage signify the beginning of a promising career in dermatological research."
