Paper of the Year Award
HCSRN's Paper of the Year Award seeks to recognize a paper that has or is likely to have an impact on science, research methods, health care delivery, policy, or patient outcomes. Nominated papers should illustrate the type of work that could only be done at HCSRN-like settings. Nominees must be an investigator from one of HCSRN’s 20 member sites. Papers published July 2021 - present are eligible. 

HCSRN Mentor of the Year Award
The HCSRN Mentor of the Year Award has a long history of recognizing those who have gone out of their way to provide guidance and motivation, and to share their knowledge, expertise and wisdom. If your mentor is always there with advice, ideas and a listening ear, recognize them by nominating them for this award. All HCSRN members are eligible for this award, regardless of their role.

HCSRN Multi-Site Collaborative Award
The HCSRN Multi-Site Collaborative Award was created to highlight collaborative work among HCSRN members that utilize the HCSRN Virtual Data Warehouse (VDW). Studies nominated must demonstrate the use of the HCSRN VDW and include participants from at least two of HCSRN's 20 member sites.
