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 have been allocated the "SNOMED - Gastric & Oesophageal Surgery Logbook" and are required to use this logbook for the duration of their training.

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

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

SNOMED - Gastric & Oesophageal Surgery Logbook

Totals for these can be manually added to the report after it has been printed and prior to submission.

Approval process

  2. Ensure all cases are marked as Complete (Completed).
