In a few weeks I will be starting my intern year, and I am interested in keeping a procedure/case log. I am not talking about daily patient tracking sheets, but an overall log of my residency and the procedures I have done and types of patients I have seen. I know surgery residents are required to keep something like this to track their cases, but is it useful in Emergency Medicine also? What experiences have others had with something like this? Do you keep it in a notebook or electronic? What kind of information do you track? Does it ultimately prove useful, or just a waste of time. Thanks for your insights.
