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.

What things would you like to see happen in your two years as president?
What I would like to see is greater collaboration both within and outside our organization. Aside from gathering for the annual meeting, we could be sharing ideas, research projects and the like among members and partner organizations. I’d be interested in partnering with groups like UMEDS or IAMSE, or any other type of research-based association with a similar mission. One directive that (Past-President) Geoff (Talmon) began during his term was to expand into other health professions outside of medicine such as education in pathology. Even in those realms, we are all facing the same issues. 

Another avenue I’d like to explore is to talk more about the educational research aspect of our field and how we can move forward with that. We have a lot of people in our group who are amazing educators, but they don’t necessarily have a background in research. I’d like to help foster more opportunity to bring that back into the meeting and other activities during the year. Possibly even webinars or collaborative research projects.

Where do you see GRIPE going in the next five years?
I think we’ll be a better-known resource for pathology educators internationally. We are already seeing greater membership from outside the United States and the newly-established Membership Committee is actively working on several international outreach efforts.

I see GRIPE as more than a source for instructional materials and questions, but we can also be known as a complete resource for Pathology education and educators. People can come to us for mentorship, recommendations, help with research projects and collaboration.

I’m also excited about our trainee involvement initiative! Through our efforts there, we hope to recruit not just medical students into the field of pathology but medical students and residents into pathology education so that they can find their niche here. Including trainees has already helped create more of a dialogue between educators and students. Reaching across student/teacher boundaries has been instrumental in highlighting perspectives from both sides, which will make us all stronger and better able to reach our shared goals. 

Anything else you’d like to share with the membership?
I am happy to hear your ideas for where you’d like to see the organization grow or if you have ideas on how to promote GRIPE to others. I look forward to serving the membership in 2019 and 2020.
