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 formal colorectal surgical training run by the Australia and New Zealand Training Board in Colon and Rectal Surgery (ANZTBCRS) - a conjoint board formed by the Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSSANZ) and the College.

The following shows the requirements as prescribed by the ANZTBCRS.

Usage

Mandatory

Logbooks

Fellows undertaking the ANZTBCRS Post Fellowship Training Program have been allocated the "SNOMED - ANZTBCRS" 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 as allocated by the Board
Alternate supervisor: Surgeon in theatre with Fellow, if present.

The nominated supervisor is responsible for approving cases (see approval process below).

Hospitals

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

Procedures

SNOMED - ANZTBCRS logbook

This logbook utilises the SNOMED CT-AU reference set with Board Reporting Terms (Excel 12.3 MB) determined by the Board. 

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

Approval process

Cases move through a supervisory workflow progression from "Draft" to "For Review" to "Approved".

  1. Fill in and save the case (Draft).
  2. Once you are satisfied that the case is complete and accurate, refer to Nominated Supervisor (For Review).
  3. Nominated Supervisors are automatically notified of cases awaiting review, in accordance with the email preferences setup on their MALT Account page. Supervisors should review these cases and, where they are satisfied that the case is complete and accurate, approve (Approved).

Once all the cases have been approved, you can print the Logbook Summary Report and submit to the Training Board. Note: the report should only contain 'Approved' status. 

Rotation Periods

Rotation periods are deactivated at a set date, after which no further cases can be entered. The ANZTBCRS Post Fellowship Training Program has a flexible start date and the annual rotation periods overlap. Fellows under taking the program should select the rotation period that is correct for their situation.

ROTATION PERIOD START DATE END DATE DEACTIVATION DATE
R1 2018 1 January 2018 28 February 2019 14 March 2019
R1 2019 1 January 2019 28 February 2020 14 March 2020
