WINNIPEG, MB - University of Winnipeg graduate Dr. Sam Wiseman has been singled out as a prominent up-and-coming Canadian, snagging the prestigious Top 40 Under 40 award, which includes recognition in the national Globe and Mail newspaper.

The 38-eight-year-old Wiseman is a surgical oncologist, endocrine surgeon, head and neck surgeon and general surgeon with St. Paul's Hospital, Providence Health Care and the University of British Columbia, and is now based in Vancouver.

The 26 members of an independent advisory board choose the honorees from about 1,200 nominees through a selection process based on five criteria: vision and leadership, innovation and achievement, impact, growth and development strategy, and community involvement and contribution.

The University of Winnipeg congratulates Dr. Sam Wiseman for his many achievements, including the Top 40 Under 40 award.
