Surgical log

  • The residents will be responsible to input all of their surgical experiences in the ACGME website accurately and in a timely manner. It is anticipated that your log is submitted each Friday for the preceding week. The residency coordinator and/or the program director will episodically review the logs. A grace period of 7-8 days is allowed. If a resident is more than eight days out of compliance, they will do that number of additional days at the end of their residency. You will be notified by email regarding the number of days you owe the program, cumulative over the years you are in the program.
  • The chief resident's surgical log must be completed on the last day that they operate. They will then meet with the program director to sign the log before leaving Dartmouth-Hitchcock at the end of their urology residency.
