Abstract

The competency driven medical education has been introduced in all the colleges of India since 2019. It is mandatory for the students to maintain a logbook under this curriculum, and the use of an annexure to logbook or a portfolio has been recommended. In this paper, we describe the rationale behind using a logbook and portfolio, the differences between the two, the process of implementation, how to assess these, the challenges, the ways to overcome them, and the potential advantages of having such a system in place for various stakeholders. Feedback and reflection are the two processes that will need careful attention to ensure a meaningful implementation of this new introduction.
