The well-being of doctors is essential for the delivery of healthcare. Avant’s vision is to support doctors throughout their lives and careers, which puts your well-being central to our purpose.
A career in medicine has many challenges. Avant wants to help you priortise your health and well-being. We provide resources in the form of information, support and advice tailored specifically to the needs of Australian doctors - to help you better face the challenges of a career in medicine and provide the highest level of care to your patients.
Avant members have access to the My Well-Being Index (WBI) app which is 100% anonymous. Customised for Australian doctors, the app uses the Well-Being Index developed by the Mayo Clinic for Doctors to help users identify burnout and increase awareness of your well-being.
