Candidates should include all of the cases they perform in their log in order to accurately outline their relevant experience. The log reinforces the importance of monitoring outcomes as a life-long responsibility of surgeons and anesthetists performing aseptic survival surgery. It is the responsibility of the candidates’ organization to review the log and attest to its accuracy.
The cases reflected in the log must occur over a 12 month period, with no more than three years transpiring between the oldest case and the date of application. In certain cases, exceptions may be made at the discretion of the Certification Committee and the Academy’s President.
