Three faculty members were recognized alongside graduating students during spring convocation ceremonies. Karen Finlay was honoured with a President's Award for Educational Leadership, while Mandeep Malik and Carlos Filipe received President's Awards for Instruction.

"These three award winners have done a great deal to advance the high level of education provided at McMaster," said University President Patrick Deane. "They should be proud of the work they are doing and the positive effects it is having on our students."

Karen Finlay, an associate professor of radiology, is widely recognized to have created a renowned centre of top-quality education within the field of radiology.

As director of the Radiology Residency Program for the past 10 years, Finlay created a comprehensive manual that provides critical resources to achieve program goals and objectives. She also implemented a computerized format of the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), which has since been adopted across Canada.

Mandeep Malik, an assistant professor in the DeGroote School of Business, received an award for his innovative educational initiatives, advocacy for experiential learning and a natural ability to immerse students in the world of marketing.

Carlos Filipe, associate professor and associate chair (undergraduate) in chemical engineering, was recognized for his enthusiasm for teaching and his ability to truly connect with his students.
