Objectives:To determine the operative experience of UK general surgery trainees and assess the changing procedural supervision and acquisition of competency assessments through the course of training.
Background Summary Data: Competency assessment is changing with concepts of trainee autonomy decisions (termed entrustment decisions) being introduced to surgical training.
Methods: Data from the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Programme (ISCP) and the eLogbook databases for all UK General Surgery trainees registered from 1st August 2007 who had completed training were used.

Results: We identified 311 trainees with complete data. Appendicectomy was the most frequently undertaken IP during first year of training (mean procedures (mp) = 26) and emergency laparotomy during final year of training (mp = 27). The proportion of all IPs recorded as unsupervised increased through training (p
