Inefficiency in surgical training has been identified as a result of low rates of supervision, with direct teaching of operating by consultants occurring in less than 20% of cases in papers dealing with general surgery and cardiac surgery training.

A logbook programme was introduced which allows easy analysis of the distribution of experience on an anatomical basis.
