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/
