• Avant and Interplast

    Student placement program

  • insurance icon

    Avant has been a proud supporter of Interplast since 2009. Annually, Avant offers one student the chance to travel to an Asia Pacific destination and accompany the Interplast volunteer surgical team. A student is given the opportunity to observe the Interplast team of volunteer plastic surgeons, anaesthetists and nurses who provide free reconstructive surgery to patients, who would otherwise not be able to afford it. This is the sixth year running that Interplast has allowed a student to be involved in this unique field trip experience.
