We present an active learning method for placing the event mentions in an operative note into a pre-specified event structure. Event mentions are first classified into ac- tion, peripheral action, observation, and report events. The actions are further clas- sified into their appropriate location within the event structure. We examine how uti- lizing active learning significantly reduces the time needed to completely annotate a corpus of 2,820 appendectomy notes.
