Resident Log

Student Handbook, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences: Reno

A log must be kept on all psychiatric patients and neurologic patients seen during residency. Residents must post their patient log data to diagnosis by the tenth of the following month.

The data is used to monitor resident progress, i.e. at six month evaluations and the yearly review for advancement; to monitor the diversity of one's training experience; and to justify or change program rotations to provide more comprehensive well-rounded training. Accreditation site reviewers may periodically review data.

Certification of training is partly based upon the Log Summary Sheet information. The resident is advised to save a copy of all log summary sheets until Board certification.
