GRIPE 2018 – Pre-Conference Workshop Information

The 2018 Annual GRIPE Winter Meeting will be taking place from January 25-27, 2018. Thursday, January 25 is a pre-conference workshop day, and we would like to highlight one of the sessions for you:

Tips and Tricks for successfully publishing scholarly work in an international journal on Medical Education
Presented by Peter de Jong, Editor-in-Chief of ​Medical Science Educator​, and Julie Hewett

In publishing scholarly work it is important to choose the right strategy in submitting the work to the most appropriate journal. The workshop will give the attendees an overview of several journals for Medical Education and the characteristics of different manuscript types, more insight in the editorial processes of a journal and several concrete strategies to increase the chances of acceptance of their work. The workshop is intended for those with no or little experience in submitting manuscripts to international medical education journals.

At the end of the workshop the participants will have a better understanding of scientific publishing in medical education and the way in how a manuscript should be submitted.

Registration is now open for the 2018 GRIPE meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada! For more information on the meeting or to register today, please visit http://www.gripemeeting.org!

GRIPE – Call to Host the 2019 GRIPE Meeting

Each year, GRIPE organizes its Annual Winter Meeting. Participants from several different countries will be visiting the meeting.

For the 2019 meeting, the GRIPE Executive Committee is investigating possible sites to help organize the meeting. At this point, we would like to invite all GRIPE members to consider their own institution to be a possible host for the meeting. Hosting the meeting gives many advantages in establishing new connections with colleagues from other medical schools, and also offers the host institution to show its own successes and facilities to others.

The Executive Committee strongly prefers GRIPE Meetings be connected to an institution with a strong pathology education program; therefore, your help and suggestions are invaluable!

Please consider your own institution as possible host for 2019 and discuss this with your own faculty members. Please note that hosting a meeting does not always indicate that the meeting will be held at your institution.

If you are considering hosting, please send us a motivated letter of intention before October 13, 2017.

We do not need a full proposal yet. As soon as the Executive Committee has judged all letters of intention, a limited number of institutions will be asked to send in a full proposal.

Letters of intention can be send to Julie Hewett at julie@gripeadmin.org.

Please consider our offer and help GRIPE to continue the organization of the annual meetings in the future!
