MALT for the AANZHPBA Post Fellowship Training Program
On this page
From 2023, the use of MALT is once again mandatory for the duration of training.
From 2023, Fellows undertaking the AANZHPBA Post Fellowship Training Program are once again required to use the Hepatic, Pancreatic & Biliary Surgery MALT logbook for the duration of their training.
Fellows undertaking sub-specialisation will still have access to existing logbooks such as the SET - General Surgery logbook and the Fellow - General Surgery logbook.
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 refers to the hospital unit supervisor.
Alternate Supervisor refers to the surgeon in theatre with the Fellow, if present.
Individual cases do not require supervisor approval from within the MALT system (see approval process below).
Record cases done in all hospitals (both accredited and unaccredited).
This logbook utilises the SNOMED CT-AU reference set with board reporting terms (XLSX 9.76MB) (XLSX 9.76MB) determined by the board.
Cases move through a non-supervisory workflow progression from 'draft' to 'completed'.
- Fill in and save the case (draft).
- Ensure all cases are marked as complete (completed).
- Generate the Logbook Summary Report.
- Submit the Logbook Summary Report to the AANZHPBA Executive Officer twice yearly (at six and 12 months). Please note that the report should only contain cases with a 'completed' status.
