DEADLINE TO SUBMIT NOMINATION FOR ALL AWARDS IS JANUARY 25, 2019.

 

 

 

Paper of the Year 

For our 2019 Paper-of-the-Year, we seek to recognize the best paper published in a peer-reviewed journal during 2018 that (1) was authored by an HCSRN researcher, and (2) illustrates the type of work that could only be done in HCSRN-like settings.  The first criterion does not preclude papers jointly authored with people outside an HCSRN member organization.  The second criterion is meant to highlight work that could not be readily done by researchers in academic or other settings with access only to public use data sets.  For example, studies dependent on variables only present in the VDW would meet this criterion, but so would single-site studies that leveraged data and researcher access to operational leaders in the organization. 

 

Nominations may be made by anyone, and the recipient need not be planning to attend the 2019 conference in order to receive the award.

 

Submit your nomination here describing how the submission meets criteria (1) and (2), and also (3) explaining the impact the paper has or is likely to have, for science, research methods, health care delivery, policy, or patient outcomes.  Include a pdf of the paper.

 

Decisions will be made by a subcommittee of the HCSRN Governing Board and announced at the 2019 Conference in Minneapolis.

Mentor of the Year 

As we prepare for our annual HCSRN meeting in Minneapolis, it is once again time to consider nominations for Mentor of the Year.  We inaugurated this award last year, and are pleased to call for nominees again in 2019.

 

Have you had an individual within HCSRN who has provided extraordinary guidance and support for your career?  Perhaps someone who has assisted you in moving forward in your career path or helped you to balance work life and personal life?  An advocate who has acted as a teacher, a counselor or guide in a remarkable way?  If so, pause for a moment and write a brief letter of nomination for that special HCSRN mentor.

 

Your letter should identify the mentor and their current position.  Take a paragraph or two to describe the contribution this individual has made to your career development.  Tell the nomination committee about why this individual is an extraordinary mentor.

 

The Mentor of the Year (2019) will be recognized at the upcoming annual HCSRN meeting.  The author(s) of the nomination will be invited to read their nomination and participate in the recognition.  All mentor nomination letters will be displayed to recognize all of the wonderful mentors in our network.  We look forward to reading about your mentoring experiences!

Early Stage Investigator 

Calling all Early Stage Investigators! You may be eligible to win the 2019 HCSRN Award for Best Abstract from an Early Stage Investigator.

ELIGIBILITY
Is the nominee an Early Stage Investigator?
 If the nominee is within 5 years of completing their terminal research degree or are within 5 years of completing medical residency (or the equivalent) and meets these criteria regarding federal funding for new and early-stage investigators: https://grants.nih.gov/policy/new_investigators/index.htm, the nominee is an Early Stage Investigator.

Is the nominee the primary author on your HCSRN 2019 abstract? If the nominee has submitted an abstract to HSCRN 2018 and is the person primarily responsible for the work represented in the abstract, the nominee is the primary author. 

If the nominee is an Early Stage Investigator AND primary author on an HCSRN 2019 abstract, they qualify for the HCSRN 2019 Early Stage Investigator Award.
 Continue reading for more information and to submit your nomination.

We want to recognize the best abstract (which could a poster or presentation on a panel) that primarily reflects the work of an Early Stage Investigator. Much of our research is collaborative, so some great presentations are largely a result of the team effort. For the Best ESI Abstract Award, we want to recognize outstanding work by an ESI, rather than outstanding work from the great teams on which an ESI may participate. In some situations, the ESI is clearly the person primarily responsible for the work. In other situations, an ESI has created an innovative add-on to a large, on-going project. To collect information about the early investigator’s “role” if the ESI is not the PI, we are also asking for a statement from the Principal Investigator (PI) of the project underlying the abstract.  If the abstract is not tied to a specific project, please have a senior person in your organization complete the PI form.
