HIPON International Conference & ICT Workshop
October 22nd – 23rd, 2015
Athens, GREECE
3rd Circular Announcement

This is the 3rd and last Circular Announcement of the International Conference & ICT Workshop “Improving Pathology Teaching”, which will be held in Athens on October 22nd – 23rd, 2015. These two successive events are being organized in the context of the European-funded project entitled “HIPON – ICT e-modules on HistoPathology: a valuable online tool for students, researchers and professionals”. For further information, please visit our web portal (www.hiponproject.eu).

Beyond the theoretical reflection on effective teaching methods, the two-day scientific event will include the educational demonstration of several pathology cases with an emphasis on the reasoning of the diagnostic approach which, moreover, serves as the backbone of HIPON. This event is thus addressed not only to colleagues with educational interests but also to medical students and pathologists, residents or -why not? – qualified professionals.

The purpose of this announcement is double. On the one hand, we intend to inform the public about the selected abstracts which will be orally presented in the forthcoming conference and, on the other hand, announce a significant achievement of HIPON’s educational team; to be more specific, in June 2015, one more HIPON-related research full paper entitled “Acquiring experience in pathology predominantly from what you see not from what you read: the HIPON e learning platform”, and reporting scientific results of HIPON project, was successfully published in Advances in Medical Education and Practice Journal. We are pleased to announce that after only 12 weeks of publication, the paper views have already exceeded the amount of 1,364! Warm congratulations to all authors!

Final Program
During the last months, a considerable number of abstracts with significant research content were submitted for consideration and possible presentation during the conference. We have to thank all authors for their efforts and support.
However, due to the time limited duration of the 3rd session of October 22nd, under which the oral presentations will take place, only five abstracts were finally selected by the Scientific Committee in order to be presented during the International Conference.

The selected abstracts with their presenting authors are listed below:
 “A Case for Integrated Multimodal-Multidisciplinary Teaching of Anatomy”, E. O. Johnson
 “Evidence-based innovation in medical education: the outstanding results of peer teaching”, E. Poulogiannopoulou
 “Innovation in Practical Teaching in Histopathology – A Students’ and Teachers’ Viewpoint”, J. P. Shrivastava
 “Diagnostic Steps in Approaching Well-differentiated Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma in FNA Material Provided by CT or EUS-guided Technique”, C. Salla
 “The Contribution of Clinicopathological Case Studies in Efficient Pathology Teaching: Students’ Experience from Athens University Faculty of Medicine”, E. Vemmou, I. Nikolakopoulos
 “Humanities in Pathology Teaching: a Session for Meaningful Learning”, E. Baltagianni

All abstracts will be included in the corresponding Abstract Book which will be published and distributed to all participants during the International Conference & ICT Workshop.
