GRIPE – Call to Host the 2019 GRIPE Meeting

Each year, GRIPE organizes its Annual Winter Meeting. Participants from several different countries will be visiting the meeting.

For the 2019 meeting, the GRIPE Executive Committee is investigating possible sites to help organize the meeting. At this point, we would like to invite all GRIPE members to consider their own institution to be a possible host for the meeting. Hosting the meeting gives many advantages in establishing new connections with colleagues from other medical schools, and also offers the host institution to show its own successes and facilities to others.

The Executive Committee strongly prefers GRIPE Meetings be connected to an institution with a strong pathology education program; therefore, your help and suggestions are invaluable!

Please consider your own institution as possible host for 2019 and discuss this with your own faculty members. Please note that hosting a meeting does not always indicate that the meeting will be held at your institution.

If you are considering hosting, please send us a motivated letter of intention before October 13, 2017.

We do not need a full proposal yet. As soon as the Executive Committee has judged all letters of intention, a limited number of institutions will be asked to send in a full proposal.

Letters of intention can be send to Julie Hewett at

Please consider our offer and help GRIPE to continue the organization of the annual meetings in the future!
