Dr. AnshuDr. Anshu, M.D., D.N.B.
Professor, Department of Pathology
Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences
Sevagram, India

Congratulations to Dr. Anshu (CMCL 2007, PHIL 2009), who designed a survey on training in cytopathology that was sent to international medical practitioners on behalf of the Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) of Cytopathology—the official journal of the British Society for Clinical Cytology and more than 20 national affiliated societies. The results of the survey have recently been published:

Anshu, et al. Survey of medical training in cytopathology carried out by the journal Cytopathology. Cytopathology. 2010;21(3):147-156. Abstract available from http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/123423463/abstract

Dr. Anshu was nominated to the EAB of Cytopathology in 2007, where she expressed an interest in studying how cytopathology training was conducted in different countries. After commissioning Dr. Anshu to design the survey, the EAB validated and piloted her questionnaire, which uncovered some interesting findings about deficiencies in training. Dr. Anshu credits her FAIMER experience for prompting the idea for study and also for giving her the tools to develop and execute the survey. The paper demonstrates variability in training and outlines best practices for training in cytopathology. The findings of this paper were presented by Dr. Amanda Herbert, Editor, Cytopathology, at the satellite meeting of the European Federation of Cytology Societies at Edinburgh, where it was decided that two working groups would formulate European guidelines on training based on the findings of this survey.

Dr. Anshu also recently attended the 17th International Congress of Cytology, held in Edinburgh, Scotland, May 16-20, 2010, where she presented two posters: “Combination of Cytologic Features which Correctly Predicts Diagnosis of Papillary Carcinoma of Thyroid on FNAC” and “Does HPV Testing Help When High-grade Cytology Is Not Confirmed at Colposcopy?”

Congratulations to Enoch Kwizera (PHIL 2007), who recently delivered his inaugural address as Professor in the Department of Pharmacology in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Walter Sisulu University (WSU) in Mthatha, South Africa. Dr. Kwizera’s lecture was entitled “25 Years of Training Doctors at WSU: How Have We Responded to the 1983 UNITRA Council Guidelines?” Dr. Kwizera had originally planned on delivering a lecture on a pharmacological topic, but changed instead to a health professions education topic, both in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Flexner Report and to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of the WSU Faculty of Health Sciences with a topic that he thought would be “the appropriate and, hopefully, more interesting one.” In 1983, the University of Transkei (UNITRA), now part of WSU, established guidelines for medical education that emphasized training health professionals to: serve the local community, educate communities about taking personal responsibility for health, think critically and creatively to solve health care problems, teach the importance of prevention, learn continuously, and practice with high ethical standards. Dr. Kwizera addressed whether the challenges issued by UNITRA 27 years ago have been met.
