Education Subcommittee
Emyr BenbowAnother campus, another tussle with incomprehensible signage. Is there some unrecognised personality disorder amongst hospital and university campuses signposters, preventing them from recognising the deficiencies with their handiwork? Are they just sadists? Or puzzle fanatics?
No matter: I arrived at University House in Leeds in good time to chair the sixth meeting of the Education and Training Sub-committee, standing in for Paola Domizio. Paola was otherwise occupied; many congratulations to Paola. Things are going well. The Educational Grant scheme has started well under Simon Cross’s care. The first four applications were very disparate: one applicant wanted software to support innovative education for medical undergraduates, another wished to digitise slides for postgraduate teaching, a third wanted help to fund a series of lectures and the last wanted to upgrade a teaching microscope.

Funds are finite, so difficult decisions were made. The Elective Bursary scheme is going well, too. Last year, we had to disappoint half those who applied, but now, we have double the funding. Of course, not every applicant is rewarded: the student working in a radiology department, who thinks we might stump up £1,200 just because he might meet histopathologists in multidisciplinary team meetings, will be disappointed. An audit of thyroid function testing in sub-Saharan Africa might be fun, too, but just a bit remote from what PathSoc members do for a living.

Until recently, medical schools receiving an Intercalated BSc award had to wait a year before re-applying, but this restriction has been relaxed, so you can apply every year. We know that many recipients become pathologists, or related specialists, so this is a good investment. Ray McMahon now steps down from his coopted position: many thanks to Ray. Another way we have of engaging students is the essay prize, this year on the topic Discuss the impact of media and the popular portrayal of pathology on its profile. The winner was Andrew Bamber, from Cambridge: his essay will soon appear on the website.

More good news. The joint RCPath/PathSoc core curriculum working group delivered its first draft earlier this year, and the current draft is being considered by the RCPath’s Specialty Advisory Committees. Two of our larger schools have already mapped their pathology teaching to the (we hope) final draft, both finding good matches, so there won’t be fundamental changes to either course. No change is good: it means you’re doing it right already.
And yet more good news. The first and second PathSoc Summer Schools were on molecular pathology, but the third will be on teaching. Pathologists teaching pathologists how to teach pathology. We know there’s an appetite for such a course because trainees have asked for one. As James Underwood indicated in the Doniach Lecture later in the week, we need to take our opportunities to teach when and where they appear, and this Summer School should help us do just that. The Education and Training Sub-committee has worked well under Paola’s leadership, and we are grateful for all her hard work. Paola is now, I guess, even busier: Sasha Benjamin Gigi and Aron Rafaele Loris will see to that.
