Professional Development and Forums

Annual Awards

SCORE recognizes the constant hard work and dedication of each and every one of our study coordinators at the University of Rochester. To better recognize outstanding work, the UR CTSI developed four awards to be given annually to study coordinators who demonstrate excellence in meliora values, teamwork, mentorship, and patient or research participant engagement. Each award carries a $50 monetary bonus. Congratulations to all!


Teamwork Award

The Teamwork Award recognizes commitment to consistently modeling open communication, cooperation and inclusion, and for building collaborative relationships to accomplish organizational goals.
