Your Logitbox logbook is modular and expandable, built around a series of logbook categories including procedures, clinics, admissions, MDT meetings and CPD, all specifically designed to capture information relevant to keeping a JRCPTB and GMC-compliant logbook. Other super-specialist activities such as echo and ultrasound training also have dedicated categories so that you can capture data relevant to accreditation in these specialist areas.
The procedure category defaults to a set of procedures relevant to your parent specialty, but you can add specialties and even individual procedure types as you need, for example. Each time you move job you can define which area of medicine you are practising in, and the system will update your available procedure database accordingly.
The final result is a logbook that is customized not only to you, but to the accreditation requirements of the specialties in which you practise.
Logbooks in surgery
Our surgical section is therefore aimed at doctors accumulating surgical experience outside of surgical specialty training, for example those aquiring surgical experience before being appointed to a surgical training scheme, doctors hoping to accredit via CESR or those needing to evidence experience aquired on overseas fellowships, and so forth.
Logbooks in the medical specialties
The Joint Royal Colleges Postgraduate Training Board has not, as yet, specified that trainees should use any specific logbook system to supplement the NHS e-portfolio. Individual physicianly Specialty Advisory Committees have likewise (with the exception of the JETS procedural logbook for gastroenterology trainees) avoided setting up their own logbook schemes.
Physician trainees are therefore free to choose their own preferred arrangement for keeping training logbooks. It is to meet this need that we designed Logitbox.
