Fellow Assessment Tools: Surgical Log and Milestones

The Fellow Assessment: Surgical Log and Milestones form should be submitted bi-annually by Fellowship Training Program Directors. Forms should be submitted in January and July regardless of the fellow's start date. The assessment should include a copy of the fellows surgical log report, an operative milestone assessment, and a non-operative milestone assessment. For the milestones, if you are having more than 1 faculty member assessing fellow(s) please average the assessment and send only 1 form.  

For the surgical log approval, your fellow is responsible for sending you their surgical log report from the Academic Universe, which you will then upload when you complete the form. 

Note, you must sign in to your ASTS Member Portal account to access the submission form. If you are submitting the form for more than one fellow, you will need to revisit the milestones link after submitting the first form and go to “Click here to begin a new submission.”
