2019 HSRProj Research Competition for Students: Apply by March 1!

Posted by on January 17th, 2019 Posted in: Announcements, Events, NLM Resources, Public Health


AcademyHealth has announced the third annual HSRProj Research Competition for Students, hosted by AcademyHealth and the National Information Center for Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR) of the National Library of Medicine (NLM). This competition invites students to use data from the Health Services Research Projects in Progress (HSRProj) database in conjunction with other sources to identify research gaps in health services and systems research. All projects should include a research statement that outlines a topic related to population health and/or social determinants of health that is missing or under-represented in the field of health services or systems research as a whole. Participants may also choose to focus projects on missing or under-represented topics in the HSRProj database itself. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program in health services research, communication science, data science, informatics, information science, public health, health economics, statistics, or a related field.

Applications must be submitted by March 1. From the application pool, judges will select five finalists to present a ten-minute web-based project synopsis. Finalist presentations will highlight the research purpose, methodology, findings, conclusions, and data visualizations. Presentations are expected to take place during the week of April 22. The winning project, and four honorary mentions, will be announced in early May. The winner or winning team will be invited to present their research as a featured poster at the 2019 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting in Washington D.C., on June 2-4. Winners will be expected to cover their own lodging, transportation, and registration. In addition, the winner(s) will be invited to work with AcademyHealth staff to write a blog post to be featured on AcademyHealth’s website describing their project and experience.
