The Acute Care Surgery Case Log System is essential to the success of your Acute Care Surgery Fellowship program. By entering the cases in the case log system, when it is time for your site revisit, the committee and revisit team will pull your cases from the Case Log system and review then prior to the visit. This will save you and the revisit team time prior to the visit. If you have any questions on the case log database system, please contact the AAST Central Office at 800-789-4006 or email us.

With the curricular change to an experiential rather than rotation based system, accurate case numbers are critical for fellow documentation and ultimate credentialing as well as programmatic verification by the AAST.
Starting December 1, 2018, the AAST is asking all Fellows to keep an Excel case log in addition to logging cases in the AAST system.
