    Instructions for the use of logbook

    Aim of the logbook

    The purpose of the logbook is to provide one source of evidence for the ne-

    phrology scientific council that you attained the desired level of competency

    required for licensure. It is the place where you are going to document experi-

    ences and skills you attained during your training.

    The logbook is divided into several sections. These instructions will help you

    completing those sections correctly.

    Personnel information

    Please fill in all your personnel information required. This will help the Egyp-

    tian Fellowship Administrators to process your logbook during scientific coun-

    cil evaluation yearly and finally before sitting for the final exam. Your person-

    nel photo should be attached to the logbook and you should sign the personnel

    information page

    Clinical nephrology , dialysis and transplantation case log

    1. You will find lists with all required cases in the curriculum. Your level of

    participation in each case and expected activities are also determined

    2. You need to mention the patient data, management provided and case pro-

    visional & final diagnosis

    3. For each case write the date of the interview

    4. Make a check mark at the appropriate column indicating your level of par-

    ticipation in case management (observer, supervised management of the

    case or independent management of the case)

    5. Each case should be counter signed by your trainer. His signature is the

    proof of your actual participation. The trainer signature should be very


    Procedures log

    1. The logbook contains tables for required procedures during different stages

    of training and the level of desired performance at each stage.

    2. You will also find empty tables to write down the procedures, your level of

    participation and the date.

    3. Your trainer should countersign each procedure to document the event

    Academic activities

    1. Academic activities that must be documented are lectures, journal clubs,

    morbidity and mortality meetings and workshops or conferences at-


    2. Any attended activity must be signed by the workshop or conference organ-

    izer/coordinator. At least two national conferences in the field of nephrol-

    ogy must be attended

    Rotation Proof

    Your scientific council has determined specific rotations in subspecialties

    that you must go through during the training period (see your curriculum for

    details). After you finish each rotation sign its block by the Hospital/training

    center manager and stamp officially.

    Assessment of logbook activities

    1. Your trainer will assess your logbook weekly for completion and provide


    2. Your educational supervisor will assess your logbook monthly or every two

    months, provide verbal or written feedback and counter sign important ac-


    3. The examination committee of the scientific council will revise your log-


    A) Annually before you progress from one year of training to another

    B) At the end of training before the final exam

    To be noted that unsatisfactory completion of the logbook would lead to delay

    of training progression.

    Unsatisfactory logbook at the end of training will prevent you from entering the

    final exam

    Important Notice:

    It is your responsibility to maintain accurate and completed logbook and to regu-

    larly update your records. Shall you meet any difficulty; you must contact your

    trainer or your specialty administrator at the Egyptian Fellowship Board.
