Call for GYN Images for the GRIPE Image Bank

The Group for Research in Pathology Education (GRIPE) would like to expand our listing of Pathology Resources on the GRIPE website (www.gripeadmin.org). As our Resource Bank Committee works through refining, updating and matching images and questions from the Master Item Bank, we’ve found several areas that would be greatly served by updated content.

This month we are reaching out to our membership and abroad for clinical, gross, micro or patient gynecology image submissions for our members-only Image Bank. If you have samples that you would like to share, please follow the online submission form here. Please note, emailed submissions will not be considered for inclusion into the Image Bank. 

Currently, the Pathology Resource listing can be found on our website under the Resources tab.

If you have a different Pathology resource you’d like to share, email it to us at support@gripeadmin.org by May 5.

Have You Visited or Submitted to the Image Bank?

Did you know that GRIPE maintains a master item bank for institutional members? The bank includes over 5,500 indexed, peer-reviewed questions and includes a computer based question management system with quick and easy search capabilities and quiz or exam construction. It also includes over 4,000 indexed digital images which cover a wide range of clinical, gross, and microscopic pathology.

Did you know you can submit your pathology images to the image bank? This month, GRIPE is looking to expand the Master Item bank by adding gynecologic pathology images. If you’d like to submit some of your GYN images, or any other images to the bank, please click here. 

The GRIPE Image and Question Bank may be found on the GRIPE website under the Resources heading as Educational Resources. From here, you’ll be able to access the bank with your institutional login information.

What is QuickPath to Boards?

QuickPath to Boards is a Facebook group maintained by the Group for Research in Pathology Education (GRIPE). This page is beneficial for students in getting help with questions about Pathology when preparing for exams from faculty and other students. The page will also be used to suggest available pathology study materials.

Faculty members are also encouraged to join the private group to help provide answers and clarifications to the many questions that students may have.  It’s a great way to support students outside of the classroom.
