  • Applications for the Doctor in Training Scholarship Program are now open



  • Congratulations to all of Avant’s 2017 Doctors in Training Research Scholarship winners. A total of 16 scholarships and grants have been awarded worth $400,000.

    Since its inception in 2012, the Avant Doctor in Training Research Scholarship Program has supported life-changing research to promote better patient outcomes and advance the careers of some of Australia's promising medical researchers.

    Started in response to the difficulties young doctors face in securing research funding, scholarships have supported research across a wide array of specialities.


  • ‘I am absolutely delighted and honoured to be the recipient of such a generous and prestigious award. The scholarship has been a major form of support and encouraged me to pursue a research pathway and become a clinician-academic.’

    - Dr Elie Matar
    2017 Advancement in Medicine Full-Time scholarship recipient
