The AOM Health Care Management Division proudly announces a new award to be given each year at the annual meeting, beginning in 2021. The HCM Division Best Student Paper award is intended to acknowledge student contributions during their doctoral studies. The award will be given to the paper judged to be the best paper with a current student, as of the annual meeting submission date, listed as either the sole author or the first author on a multi-author paper. The "student" self-designation, which is selected by the submitter at the time of submission, will be used to identify eligible papers. Papers that are identified as eligible for the HCM Division Outstanding Paper Based on a Dissertation award will not be eligible for the HCM Division Best Student Paper award; however, papers reporting on dissertation-related research will be eligible. The award will include a $250 cash prize.
