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.

 

The following shows the requirements as prescribed by the Board of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery.

Usage

Mandatory for all SET levels 

Logbooks

Trainees will have the following logbook types allocated:

SET - SNOMED Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery

This logbook type utilises the SNOMED CT-AU reference set with Board reporting terms determined by the Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery Training Board.

Trainees who have transferred from a different specialty, where access has been granted to MALT, will retain access to the logbook from that specialty for reporting. 

Supervisors

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

Nominated supervisor: Specialty Surgical Supervisor
Alternate supervisor: Surgeon in theatre with Trainee during procedure

All supervisors must be Fellows of the College (FRACS). Only one nominated supervisor can be selected per rotation.

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

Hospitals

Record cases done in accredited hospitals only.

Procedures

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

SET - SNOMED Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery logbook

This logbook type utilises the SNOMED CT-AU procedure list with selected terms identified by the Training Board as Board Reporting Terms (Excel 9.65 MB). The MALT Logbook Summary Report and Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery Operative Experience  Report will only show procedure counts for Board Reporting Terms.

A report listing ALL procedures can be generated via the MALT Custom Report Tool, All Procedures Logged Report tab. Please note that the All Procedures Logged Report is not valid for submission to the Training Board.

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. Print the Logbook Summary Report and the Accumulative Procedure and Indicator Totals Report. Instructions for printing reports (PDF 177 KB)
  4. Ask your Nominated Supervisor to sign the top of the reports.
  5. Submit the signed reports to the Training Board. 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.
