Program directors and program coordinators have access to their trauma fellow case logs.  It is accessed by logging onto the OTA website.  

Fellows participating in an OTA Accredited Fellowship Program will submit a case log to the OTA online case recording database. Fellows will record only cases in which they are primary surgeon or first assistant (actively participate). For multiple procedure cases, the fellow may list each unique procedure separately. The fellowship director will enforce full compliance with completion of this log. Completed case logs will be due July 31st.  Each fellow must log a minimum of 600 cases (CPT Codes) over the academic year from the qualifying trauma case list as noted in the requirements.  

The fellowship committee will review the case logs on an annual basis. The total number of cases and types of cases will be reviewed. In addition to the total number of trauma cases, the core trauma cases will be evaluated and it is expected that all fellows meet the minimums in most if not all categories.

For assistance with case logs contact Rachel O'Connell.
