MALT - SET in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (NZ)


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 Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery New Zealand.


Mandatory: SET 1-5


Trainees will have the following logbook types allocated:

SET - SNOMED Plastic Surgery (NZ)

This logbook type utilises the SNOMED CT-AU reference set with Board Reporting Terms determined by the Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery New Zealand. 

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.


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: Supervisor
Alternate supervisor: Consultant in theatre with you

All Nominated Supervisors must be Fellows of the College (FRACS).
Alternate Supervisors can be International Medical Graduates (IMG).


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


The SET - SNOMED Plastic Surgery (NZ) logbook type utilises the SNOMED CT-AU procedure list with selected terms identified by the Training Board as Board Reporting Terms  (Excel 9.66 MB).

The MALT Logbook Summary 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.

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).

The Training Board will generate Trainees' Logbook Summary Reports after the Deactivation Date.

Rotation Periods

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