Find a surgeon

The Find a Surgeon directory is a listing of active Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons who meet the requirements of the College's Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program and have opted to be on the list. This list excludes retired or inactive Fellows.

 

MALT is available for use by surgeons undertaking the Australian and New Zealand Gastric and Oesophageal Surgery Association (ANZGOSA) Post Fellowship Training Program. 

The following shows the requirements as prescribed by the Training Board in Upper GI Surgery.

Usage

Mandatory

Logbooks

Fellows undertaking the ANZGOSA Post Fellowship Training Program will be allocated the "Gastric & Oesophageal Surgery Logbook". 

This logbook will be allocated in addition to existing logbooks such as "SET - General Surgery" and "Fellow - General Surgery".

Fellows commencing training from 2017 will be allocated the "SNOMED - Gastric & Oesophageal Surgery Logbook" and are required to use this logbook for the duration of their training.

Supervisors

MALT uses the terms Nominated Supervisor and Alternate Supervisor.  Supervisors can view cases for the Fellows they are supervising and provide comments on specific cases.

Nominated supervisor: Hospital Unit Supervisor
Alternate supervisor: Surgeon in theatre with Fellow, if present.

Individual cases do not require supervisor approval from within the MALT system (see approval process below).

Hospitals

Record cases done in all hospitals (both accredited and unaccredited).

Procedures

Gastric & Oesophageal Surgery Logbook

A procedure list (PDF 157 KB) has been set by the Training Board. If the specific procedure performed is not in MALT, use one of the "other" procedure options such as "Other oesophageal surgery (neoplasia, specify)" or "Other pancreas + duodenum".

For cases where more than one surgical procedure has been undertaken, MALT allows multiple procedures to be recorded.

SNOMED - Gastric & Oesophageal Surgery Logbook

This logbook utlises the SNOMED CT-AU reference set with selected terms identified by the Training Board as Board Reporting Terms (PDF 478 KB). All Fellows commencing training in 2017 are to use this logbook from R1 2017.

Approval process

Cases move through a non-supervisory workflow progression from "Draft" to "Completed".

  1. Fill in and save the case (Draft).
  2. Ensure all cases are marked as Complete (Completed).
  3. Generate the Logbook Summary Report.
  4. Submit the Logbook Summary Report to the ANZGOSA Executive Officer twice yearly (at 6 and 12 months).

Rotation Periods

Rotation periods are deactivated at a set date, after which no further cases can be entered.
