Early Career Doctor Advisory Council

Established in 2010, the Avant Early Career Doctor Advisory Council (ECDAC) focuses on the emerging and existing issues early career doctors face and how Avant could assist. 

Being an Avant member made the transition from medical school to clinical practice seamless. Knowing that 24/7 medico-legal advice is just a phone call away puts me at ease.
