Abstract: We performed a comprehensive analysis of the operative experience of UK Plastic Surgery Trainees using the web-based eLogbook.An analysis of data recorded prospectively by Plastic Surgery Registrars 2010-2014 in eLogbook.The eLogbook data of 336 Specialty Registrars entered from 2010 to 2014 was analysed. Over the six-year training programme, trainees participated in a mean of 2117 procedures and performed a mean of 1571 procedures with or without supervision. We also determined the mean number of procedures for 14 indicative operative domains performed during training and compared these to current (2012) indicative numbers required prior to the award of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).The eLogbook contains valuable data to determine the operative experience of UK Plastic Surgery trainees. This new data will be reflected in the updated indicative numbers required for CCT. Both trainees and trainers may use the data to monitor the acquisition of operative experience over time and target training where necessary.
