Mr. Charles Hsuen

Professionalism Awards Nomination

It is with extreme pleasure that I have this opportunity to nominate Mr. Charles Hsuen, Visa/IMG Programs Administrator. Charles is a “breath of fresh air” in the Medical School and has become the “go-to” person for many people and departments within the FOM.    

Charles participates in many events and volunteer projects; Charles took part in the social committee and assumed total responsibly for the Children Wish Foundation Auction which was hosted November in Tupper Commons. This event was extremely professional and enjoyed by all. Charles also volunteers for CKDU which is part of the Dal Student Union and hosts a radio show every Monday night for the broader community.

Charles works very closely with his post grad students to ensure our international students are well looked after and feel comfortable in their new surroundings.

Dr. Badley, previous vice Dean of Faculty of Medicine quotes “Charles looks after the sheet music for the Tupper Band; he initiated and maintains the bands website. He records the rehearsals and generally looks after all the loose ends.  Charles is extremely helpful and we don’t know what we would do without him”.

If we were asked to identify someone within the FOM, who promotes a culture of professionalism, positive attitude, and displays respects for others it would be Charles Hsuen.
