Our inaugural International Undergraduate Pathology Quiz attracted over 100 students from countries around the world.

On Thursday 1 December the College delivered an International Undergraduate Pathology Quiz  via Zoom. Over 100 students joined from countries around the world. All were undergraduates studying medicine or related subjects.

Our quiz host was Consultant Histopathologist Dr Alireza Behzadnia who gave detailed feedback helping the undergraduates understand the reason behind the answers. The attendees were thoroughly engaged, discussing which answers were most appropriate.

The winning team was a group of 5th year medical students from Egypt, who will receive free virtual tickets to the 2023 International Pathology Day on 8 November 2023.

We asked students who attended to fill out a short feedback questionnaire after the event and those who responded rated the event an average of 4.4 out of 5 in terms of enjoyment. 

Following the success of this inaugural event, we plan to run another International Undergraduate Pathology Quiz next year. The date for this quiz will be around the time of International Pathology Day 2023 and will be confirmed soon.
