Logbooks

Your logbook is a record of the patients you have seen during the clerkship. Every complete history and physical examination or initial consultation that you perform should be recorded in the appropriate place in your logbook. In addition, ambulatory patient encounters should be recorded and procedures, such as venipuncture, bladder catheterization, and others should be recorded in the appropriate place on the last two pages of the logbook.

Please keep your logs up to date - once the patients are gone it will be very difficult for you to describe them accurately.
