Titan Awards

To recognize OHDSI collaborators (or collaborating institutions) for their contributions towards OHDSI’s mission, the OHDSI Titan Awards were introduced at the 2018 Symposium and were handed out once again during the 2019 Symposium.

Annually, community members are invited to nominate individuals or institutions they feel have made significant contributions towards advancing OHDSI’s mission, vision and values. Once nominations are submitted, the OHDSI Titan Award Committee will select the award winners. Award winners will be announced before the networking reception at the annual symposium.

The award categories, as well as all previous recipients, can be found below.
