Opportunity for Pathology Program Directors and Residents

As the chair of the 2016 Group for Research in Pathology Education (GRIPE) Annual meeting, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about a special offer to pathology residents and faculty.

The Non-Member registration fee has been waived! That’s right, you don’t have to be a member to attend at the member registration price of $375.00.

Registration will be $400 after December 15, 2016.
Residents can attend for $200.00.

Our organization presents an excellent opportunity for residents and junior faculty to become involved with an international pathology group. For many medical schools, a record of working with a national or international group in the specialty is a requirement for promotion. We are dedicated to improving pathology education, especially in this era of integrated curricula.

Please join us for the 2016 GRIPE Winter Meeting in San Diego, CA!

San Diego Double Tree Golf Resort
San Diego, California, USA
Date: January 28-30, 2016

Thank you,
Mänette Monroe, MD, MEd, FCAP, FASCP
