Emory Pathology eLearning Portal (EPeP)

Welcome to the new Emory Pathology eLearning Portal (EPeP)

The Emory Pathology eLearning Portal (EPeP) is a set of self-learning tools consisting of interactive, question-based modules consisting of cases or laboratory scenarios, as well as other media offerings, such as lecture videos. Many of modules have been formatted as quizzes that give feedback after each question is answered. Other media types are scheduled to be added as they are developed.

How do I gain access to EPeP?

EPeP can be accessed only if you have a username and password. Various institutions and organizations are currently including EPeP as a part of their residency training, as well as refreshers for both faculty and fellows. Access on an individual basis for those who wish to further their training is in development, and will be available in the near future. Please check back at a later date, or contact EPeP's director for additional information.

How is EPeP going to help you?

In quiz-based modules -

After resolving each case or scenario you will be able to:

    - Identify the tests that are useful for the diagnosis,
    - Distinguish microbiological and morphological characteristics of the organism,
    - Recognize clinical and pathological characteristics caused by these agents,
    - Outline basic principles of treatment and prevention,
    - Explain public health implications of the agents presented in these cases and scenarios.

How to use the question-based modules -

  • Choose one of the topics from the list on the left, and a series of learning topics based on your selection will appear.
  • Select one of the sub-categories or topics and start answering the multiple choice questions. You will receive feedback for each question after selecting 'Submit'.
  • Each case has 10 to 20 questions and should take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.
  • At the end you will receive a score of the questions you answered correctly, which your teacher may ask you to print so that you can show that you have looked at that specific topic.

Are contributions accepted from non-Emory Pathology faculty/trainees?
