“I’m so thrilled. It’s a wonderful accolade to be recognised at this international level,” Dr Mandrusiak said.
“The Teaching Excellence Award allows me to travel to the UK for the Universitas 21 Health Sciences Group annual meeting in September, 2016.
“There I will present a workshop in collaboration with the other award recipient, Dr Hong Gao of China.”
Mount Gravatt resident Dr Mandrusiak was recognised for her outstanding work advancing inter-professional and international teaching and learning.
Her impact ranges from paving inroads for simulated learning in China, to teaching cardiorespiratory physiotherapists in Kuwait, and fostering clinical placements in Vietnam.
