GRIPE 2020 Pre-Conference Workshops Announced!

During the upcoming GRIPE meeting in San Antonio, there will be two terrific pre-conference sessions for your consideration. Sessions will be held concurrently beginning at 12:30 pm on Thursday, January 23.

Teaching in the Internet Age: Optimizing Educational Techniques in the World of the Smartphone
Presented by Geoff Talmon


The Internet Age has changed the landscape of education. While innovations such as eLearning, YouTube videos, and other online resources are visible, the use of “tried and true” teaching methods that are well-known to educators likely need new approaches. As an example, traditional lectures, often have a singular focus—information delivery. Increased access to factual information via the Internet using devices that are almost always readily available has made simple exposure to information a less important activity. Even student-centered, interactive activities such as problem-based learning may be more effective if different approaches than have been used in the past when students have access to the sum of medical knowledge and search engines. This session will address the technique to optimize teaching in today’s information-rich environment.

Using Social Media to Promote Pathology
Presented by Maren Fuller


Social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook are great tools to connect with others and share information. These tools can be employed to promote pathology via interacting with other pathologists, educators, medical professionals, medical students, and even the general public. It’s also an excellent way to expand the reach of pathology beyond one’s own department and institution.
 
The goals of the workshop are to learn the basics of using social media: setting up an account, composing posts, and consideration of “best practices” including HIPPA and privacy concerns. The workshop will also include a hands-on component for all levels: from the basics of setting up an account and posting to using hashtags and an introduction to analytics.

#GRIPE20 Plenary Speaker Highlights: Dr. Paulo Saldiva

The GRIPE 2020 Annual Meeting is just around the corner, and we would like you to get to know some of our keynote speakers! We have two plenary speakers this year, and we hope you enjoy their presentations.

The Relevance of Pathology for Global Policy: The Case of Environmental Pathology
Presented by Paulo Saldiva, MD, PhD

Paulo Saldiva

Paulo Saldiva, MD, PhD received his MD from the University of Sao Paulo School of Medicine in 1977 and PhD in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology from the University of Sao Paulo in 1983. He is currently a Professor of Pathology at the University of Sao Paulo School of Medicine and Director of the University’s Institute for Advanced Studies.

Dr. Saldiva made his scientific career on environmental pathology and the impacts of air pollution in human health. He is a leading researcher in this area and works on implementing scientific information in public policies to improve human health in megacities and metropolitan areas. Dr. Saldiva is a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the World Meteorological Association, World Health Organization, and member of the Urban Meteorology and Environment Science Advisory Group from WMO. He is also a member of the Brazilian Sciences Academy and National Academy of Medicine. He has two sons, plays harmonica and is a passionate bicycle rider.

Title: The Relevance of Pathology for Global Policy: The Case of Environmental Pathology
Time: Friday, January 24, 2020, 9:00 AM

This session will address one of several forms to make pathology visible for different stakeholders inside and outside the academic area. We will demonstrate the relevance of pathology and pathological knowledge for better understanding problems that affect full populations, particularly those within megacities, and how this knowledge can be translated into public policies to improve the quality of life of human beings and the challenges to make it happen.

The real life model discussed in this plenary session will be related to environmental pathology and air pollution: starting from the basic scientific knowledge of its effects on respiratory diseases and reproduction (from experimental models), passing through clinical studies and translating to the society through government (public policies), organized society groups (NGOs, Civil groups, etc), business (public and private companies). A key demonstration that pathology must be recognized and viewed as a cornerstone not just for individual diagnosis, but also for relevant social and global issues.

GRIPE 2020 – Opportunities for Pathologists & Trainees

The Group for Research in Pathology Education (GRIPE) extends a warm welcome to join them for their winter meeting in San Antonio, Texas January 23-25, 2020 at the Menger Hotel. This year’s theme is “Enhancing Pathology’s Visibility to Our Students, Colleagues and Patients.”

We’d like to bring your attention to two opportunities for your students that are part of the 2020 Annual Meeting: the John H. Holliman Resident Scholarship and the Trainee Posters. As in years passed, GRIPE will be awarding the Holliman Resident Scholarship to a pathology resident who is sincerely interested in pursuing undergraduate or graduate teaching of pathology as part of their career planning. If you would like to nominate someone for this award, or if you would like more information, please visit our website

Also, in 2020 GRIPE will be featuring poster submissions from trainees along with the general poster presentations during the meeting. This gives trainees an opportunity to present potential research, as well as an opportunity to present alongside fellow pathology educators.

Please share these opportunities with any residents or colleagues you feel may be interested. If you would like to find out more about the annual meeting in San Antonio, please visit the meeting website.

If you have any questions about our organization or our resident scholarship, please let us know. We can be reached by email at support@gripeadmin.org or by phone at 304.208.8060.

Tom Kent Award for Excellence in Pathology Education
The Tom Kent Award for Excellence in Pathology Education’s emphasis will be on contributions to Pathology education, which will be defined as broadly as possible, and include both undergraduate and graduate programs. The award will recognize the broader category of “education,” rather than just presentation skills, and should recognize a “lifetime” of contributions, rather than something done at any one point in time. The awardee’s contribution to education should be widely recognized, and not simply gratitude for “services to GRIPE”. Anyone who has made a major contribution to Pathology Education will be eligible, whether or not they are GRIPE members. The award will be non-monetary, except that GRIPE will pay some portion of the recipient’s transportation expenses (amount to be determined by the Executive committee) to attend the annual meeting and accept the award.

Candidates should be nominated by a minimum of 3 GRIPE members, each in separate institutions. Letters of support must include testimony of the nominee’s contributions at their medical institution outside of North America. The awardee will be selected from among the nominees by the Executive Committee.
The award will be non-monetary, except that GRIPE will pay some portion of the recipient’s transportation expenses (amount to be determined by the Executive Committee) to attend our annual meeting and accept the award.
