The EDEC Candidate’s Logbook

The logbook is the tool, which records all echo reports produced by the EDEC curriculum participants. It reflects the practical experience acquired during the training.

To complete the logbook, the participants need to:

1. Perform the echo examination in their hospital
2. Upload the TTE/TEE reports in the EDEC Profile click here for the Logbook template.
3. Ask the mentor and supervisor to review and validate the reports
4. At the end of the curriculum, the logbook will be reviewed by the EDEC Committee.

A minimum of 100 transthoracic (TTE) and 35 transesophageal echocardiagraphy (TEE) is required to finalize the logbook.

The following outlines are provided as a framework to help participants with their task. Not all information will be expected or available for every echo report, but a high standard of reporting is anticipated by applicants for EDEC.

More information about the logbook can be found in the EDEC guidelines.
