Residentlogbook was initially developed in 2004 to track Canadian anesthesia residents’ experiences throughout their residency. It evolved into a nationwide tool used across all anesthesia programs. It served to better understand the overall experience anesthesia residents were receiving throughout the residency program and allowed program directors to track individual residents’ progress. In 2012; the Residentlogbook was endorsed by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Completion of the Residentlogbook is now a professional responsibility for you as a Canadian Anesthesiology Resident. The Residentlogbook.com/ LogMD will be a formal part of your journey of life-long
learning as you record and reflect upon your professional activity. You will also contribute to the specialty by providing information which will be used to accredit your program and ultimately improve Canadian Anesthesiology Training.

Currently, there are almost 3.5 million medical experiences recorded in the system and growing quickly each year. This data is used to calculate baselines of the amount of each experience residents are exposed to in their training at both a program and national level. These baselines can be used by both residents and program directors to see how a resident’s experience compares to the averages.
The system is cloud based and offers both a web and mobile experience. Residents can log cases on the go utilizing the iPhone app or any other internet enabled device with the WebMobile experience. The website offers a wide variety of reports both the residents and program directors can generate.
