Top 5 Reasons Why GRIPE Membership is Valuable

Do you know any Pathologists who aren’t yet GRIPE Members? Here are five reasons they should join GRIPE!

  • Access to the Resource Bank – The GRIPE resource bank contains over 5,500 indexed, peer-reviewed questions and images that have been submitted to GRIPE. It includes multiple choice questions, images with multiple choice questions, and clinical case items.
  • Discounted registration for the Annual Meeting – Being a GRIPE member saves you money for the Annual Meeting. 
  • Access to Job Postings in Pathology Education – GRIPE maintains a job posting on the website for open positions in Pathology. If you’re looking for a new position, it’s easier to look through Pathology listings than to try and narrow all listings to just Pathology.
  • Access to Pathology Mentors – If you are looking to broaden your horizons in Pathology, GRIPE can provide you information on Pathologists or Mentors in your area.
  • Updates with News, resources and information valuable to pathology educators– Any time there is new information or news that might interest Pathology Educators, GRIPE will let their members know.

Joining GRIPE is easy! Visit the GRIPE website today at www.gripeadmin.org and click “Join Today!”

Will you be attending any pathology conferences? Let us know!

We’d like to get the word out about Pathology Education and GRIPE. To do this, we need your help!


Will you be attending any Pathology-Based Conferences this year? If you are, please let us know! You can send this information to us via email at support@gripeadmin.org.


We’d like to begin exhibiting at these meetings and your information will help us expand our list of current meetings to attend. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please just let us know at support@gripeadmin.org.

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.

The QuickPath to Boards group may be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/quickpath/

Before You Go – 2019 GRIPE Annual Winter Meeting

We are just a few days away from the 2019 GRIPE Annual Winter Meeting. As you are preparing for your trip, there are a few items to note/remember.

  • As with nearly all conference hotels, air conditioning tends to be cooler than many like – pack the extra sweater or jacket just in case!
  • Bring comfortable walking shoes. While the hotel is flat and easy to walk, it is more enjoyable in comfortable shoes.
  • Shuttle service is available to and from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY), and can be reserved online. Please book at least 24 hours prior to flight arrival time.
  • Registration on Thursday will be open from 12 PM to 5:30 PM in the 2nd Floor Prefunction Area. If you are unable to join us for the Thursday pre-conference sessions, we hope you can join us at 5:30 PM for the Reception in the same location!
  • Be sure to download your copy of the 2019 program book to your device for quick reference.
  • Due to travel, there will be limited support from the GRIPE Administrative Office. We will still be answering emails, but may be slightly slower than usual. If you have any last minute questions or concerns, please be sure to let us know at support@gripeadmin.org! Looking forward to a successful meeting!
