Dr. Madhuwanthi Dissanayake, Senior Lecturer and Consultant Ophthalmologist, Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, University of Colombo, was the winner of BMJ South Asia Award for Excellence in Medical Education 2015. 

The award ceremony was held at Leela Hotel Mumbai recently. Presenting the project ‘Developing and incorporating a module on professionalism and ethics in medical postgraduate training’ in Mumbai, she has brought international recognition to postgraduate medical education of Sri Lanka and was also requested to extend this as a project throughout South Asia.

Dr. Dissanayake is a graduate of the Leadership Development Programme of the Asia Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) and represents Sri Lanka in the Women in Ophthalmology Subcommittee of APAO. A practicing Consultant Ophthalmologist, she was the Joint Secretary of the College of Ophthalmologists of Sri Lanka in 2013 and is a member of the Board of Study of Ophthalmology of Post Graduate Institute of Medicine (PGIM), University of Colombo. 

As an examiner and a member of the Board of Study of Ophthalmology, she is keen on promoting professionalism and ethics in postgraduate medical education and selected the theme for her graduating project at the Asia Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology Leadership Development Programme.
 
She was supported in her efforts in successfully incorporating a module on Professionalism and Ethics in Medical Postgraduate Education by the Director of the PGIM, her Supervisor for the APAO LDP Project Dr. Dushyantha Wariyapola, Dr. Madawa Chandratilake and other members of her team.
