We invest millions in education, research, grants and advocacy activities, fearlessly advocating for a fair system and improvements in healthcare. Additional investment is made through our grant programs, funding member research and initiatives to advance quality, safety and professionalism in medicine to deliver better health outcomes.

United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are used to guide us in delivering improved healthcare

Taking action

Avant’s Early Career Research Program (formerly the Doctor in Training Research Program) was launched in 2012 to support young doctors’ research to promote better patient outcomes. Since its inception, the program invested $4.3m across over 130 projects covering topics including transplants, oncology, and cardiology.

Risk Advisory Services

To aid members in delivering best practice care to their patients, in 2023 we launched Avant Assist. This free, proactive service provides members and practices with a directory of resources, clinical tools and services to help them identify and reduce risks.

Risk Advisory Services
Patient receiving vaccination

Avant advocated for a COVID vaccination indemnity scheme with the Department of Health, to provide confidence to doctors and patients. In June 2021, the government announced a new no-fault indemnity scheme to cover the costs of injuries above $5,000 due to a proven COVID vaccination adverse reaction.

Advocating to health policy

Avant partners with over 30 medical colleges, associations and societies on training, education, research and advocacy, to improve medical practice for the benefit of doctors and patients. Our partnership with Australian Orthopaedic Association focuses on improving outcomes for patients and sharing risk management resources with surgeons.
