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 Post Fellowship Training in Breast Surgery. 

The following shows the requirements as prescribed by the Society.

Usage

Mandatory

Logbooks

Fellows undertaking the BreastSurgANZ Post Fellowship Training Program have been allocated the                        "BreastSurgANZ 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

The BreastSurgANZ logbook utilises the SNOMED CT-AU reference set with selected terms identified by the Society as Reporting Terms

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 BreastSurgANZ as instructed. Note: the report should only contain 'Completed' status.

Rotation Periods

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