Today in pathology, like in many other fields of medicine, we are facing a huge amount of (emerging) data, and a need for their practical implementation. The main idea behind HIPON project was to create an on-line platform for bridging the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge, important for pathological everyday work and science.

Conventional medical books follow an encyclopedic-type formula citing single diagnostic features of specific diseases without initiating the reader to think as a professional. In pathology training, one of the current hardest and most important tasks is the conversion of the extensive amount of available data into medical experience, after a proper analysis.

HIPON e-learning platform  under final processing procedure

 

In the immense field of modern pathology, an extensive amount of data is available, and more than ever, practical skills are requested to be developed by medical students, researchers and professionals. The conversion of the extensive amount of available data into medical experience represents one of the most important tasks in medical education; this challenging prospect of building a new multi language e-learning platform was linked with the HIPON project which has resulted in a valuable teaching instrument which aims to capture professional experience in pathology, bridging both the worlds of education and work.

Nowadays, educational methods and tools are continually changing thanks to the fast progress of modern technologies; platforms for e-learning in medicine have been constructed, a few of them for histopathology training. However, to the best of our knowledge, there is no updated platform as the one built within the framework of the HIPON project; the latter platform combines a virtual portfolio, a library of resources and case studies’ data banks along with e-learning modules. HIPON platform has resulted in an autonomous well-structured and user-friendly, multi-language e-learning system, specifically focusing on histopathology, and offering practical experience to students, researchers and professionals in the field of Medicine.

It is undisputable that in medicine, simulation and real world problem solving are promising pedagogical tools, which improve authentic learning. Learning authentically implies that users face simulations of their present or future professional practice in order to develop proper skills. Based on this, a project under the title “ ICT e-modules on HistoPathology: a valuable online tool for students, researchers and professionals - HIPON”, co-financed by the Lifelong Learning Program of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency, The Commission of the European Union, has been launched at the beginning of 2013.

Pathology-student is a site created by Dr. Kristine Krafts, M.D., Assistant Professor of Department of Pathology in University of Minnesota school of medicine.

The access to the site is free, as it is independent and viewer-funded. It deals with a variety of pathology subjects and related clinical topics.

The user can also submit her/his email and get an update of the posts, as well as a variety of clinical pathology pearls directly to her/his email inbox.

In addition, the user is capable of either posting his or her own questions or answering to the already posted cases/questions.

It is a useful learning tool to the average medical student and the pathologist alike.
