MALT - Information for ANZGOSA


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.




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".


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).


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


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.

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.

R1 2016 1 February 2016 31 January 2017 14 February 2017
R1 2017 1 February 2017 31 January 2018 14 February 2018

Historical Totals

This feature is for those using MALT for the first time mid-way through their training. It can be used to record procedure totals for previous reporting periods so that the "Total Entire Training" figures in the "Logbook Summary Report" are correct.

Access "Historical Totals" from either "Dashboard" or "Account" page and enter relevant totals for each procedure and supervision level.
