GRIPE – 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!

  1. 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.
  2. Discounted registration for the Annual Meeting – Being a GRIPE member saves you money for the Annual Meeting.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.gripeweb.org and click “Join Today!”

GRIPE – 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 at https://www.facebook.com/groups/quickpath/. Although a Facebook account is required to join the QuickPath group, no one will have access to your personal, non-public information.

GRIPE – Call for Image and Question Bank Committee Volunteers

The Group for Research in Pathology Education (GRIPE) would like to invite you to become more involved with the association. There are two main areas in which volunteer help is always welcomed and appreciated – the Image Bank Committee and the Question Bank Committee.

We are seeking broad representation of professional educators and pathologists from around the world. Your availability for a one-hour monthly phone meeting and ready accessibility by email is expected, in addition to great ideas!

Membership at a committee level fosters relationships with like-minded colleagues and may well enhance your professional standing and opportunities. If you have an interest in volunteering for either of these Committees, please email us at support@gripeadmin.org by Wednesday, May 3, 2017 to let us know!
