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 Urology.

Usage

Mandatory: all SET levels

Logbooks

SET - SNOMED Urology

This logbook type utilises the SNOMED CT-AU reference set with Board Reporting Terms determined by the Board of Urology. Trainees on a General Surgery rotation should also enter General Surgery cases into the SET - SNOMED Urology logbook.

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:  the training supervisor.
Alternate supervisor: the surgeon in theatre with the Trainee.

Supervisors can be Fellows of the College (FRACS) or International Medical Graduates (IMG).

Supervisors are not required to approve individual cases within the MALT system (see approval process below).

Hospitals

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

Procedures

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

SET - SNOMED Urology

This logbook type utilises the SNOMED CT-AU procedure list with selected terms identified by the Board of Urology as Board Reporting Terms (Excel 9.9 MB).

The MALT Board Approved Logbook Summary Report (LSR)  will only show procedure counts for Board Reporting Terms.

The non-Board Terms Report shows procedure counts for non-Board Reporting Terms, and should be used for submission to the Training Board by those trainees on a General Surgery rotation.

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. For trainees on a Paediatric Surgery rotation, generate the Board Approved Logbook Summary Report (LSR).
  4. For trainees on a General Surgery rotation, generate the non-Board Terms Report.
  5. Submit the Logbook Summary Report and/or the non-Board Terms Report to the Training Board with your Quarterly Assessment Report. 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.
