Founded by doctors in 1893, now over half of all doctors in Australia are members, benefiting from our products and services.
By doctors, for doctors
Avant is a member-owned organisation founded by a group of doctors in 1893. We are Australia’s largest medical indemnity insurer, protecting over half of all doctors, and offer an extensive range of products and services to support them in their professional and personal lives.
Our focus is on delivering high-quality insurance products, finance and legal services specifically for doctors as well as solutions for medical practices. This is done in the context of our commitment to a sustainable health system and societal wellbeing.
Today, Avant represents over 85,000 medical practitioners and students, across every state and territory. No one knows better than us, the unique context and challenges doctors face.
