The Education Committee is pleased to announce the launch of the College’s new e-logbook.
The e-Logbook is an online surgical logbook for ophthalmologists, designed for the simple entry and analysis of ophthalmic surgical data by individual users from any computer with a connection to the internet. Surgical information is displayed in both tabular and graphical forms allowing the easy analysis of data for training progress, audit and revalidation purposes. The e-logbook captures the data required by the College for CCT purposes.
It will be mandatory for trainees starting training from August 2011 to use the e-logbook to record their surgical procedures during training. All other trainees and College Members are encouraged to use the e-logbook.
From 6 August 2012 the e-logbook will be compulsory for all trainees below ST7 level. Please see letter from the Chairman of the Training Committee (15 March 2012)
The e-logbook is available for all College Members to use. Please visit www.eyelogbook.co.uk to register.
The eyelogbook app is free to download from the App Store, however there is a subscription charge of £18 per year. When you first login to your account from the app, a 1-month trial period is activated so you can try before purchasing your subscription.
There is still an Excel template logbook available for anyone to use. Please click here to download.
It is important for trainees to record all surgical experience, including procedures that they have performed supervised or assisted at.
