We understand how hard you work to build your career, so we want to offer doctors in training, like you, the best in medical defence, personal advice and support. Your reputation, training progress or registration could be damaged by a complaint or enquiry that your employer’s professional indemnity insurance may not cover you for. It is vital to choose a medical defence organisation (MDO) that has the experience and resources to support and represent you when you need it most. By choosing Avant, you'll be backed by the largest specialist medico-legal advice team in Australia.
You can feel confident that you have the right level of protection with our medical indemnity insurance. Our comprehensive cover offers up to $20 million in civil liability, including unlimited private practice, cover for training and employment disputes, and cover for disciplinary matters.
Our Doctor in Training Research Scholarships empower tomorrow's medical researchers. By supporting Australia's promising young doctors in their life-changing research, we help them promote better patient outcomes, while advancing their careers.
The annual, multi-trip cover provides you and your family with protection for both business and leisure travel.
Your ability to earn an income is usually your greatest financial asset, so insuring your income from the beginning of your career makes sense.
