Sponsorship Team 
Angela Zheng & Laura Borchert 

As the Sponsorship Team, our role is to liaise with sponsors and negotiate sponsorship deals with new and existing partners to ensure our events are catered for. A significant part of it is developing our sponsorship prospectus, looking after sponsors at our events and making sure that agreements are beneficial for both MSSBU and Sponsors. 



As Australia’s leading medical defence organisation (MDO), Avant’s medical student membership and indemnity insurance package is like no other in the marketplace. Our strength and size means we have the ability to offer you the products and services suitable for students at medical schools in Australia, such as free student-specific indemnity insurance, educational resources to increase your knowledge, unique placement opportunities and more.
Important: Professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance products available from Avant Mutual Group Limited ABN 58 123 154 898 (Avant) are issued by Avant Insurance Limited, ABN 82 003 707 471, AFSL 238 765 (Avant Insurance). Cover is subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions of the policy. Any advice here does not take into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. You should consider whether the product is appropriate for you before deciding to purchase or continuing to hold a policy with us.

Support, protection and guidance are integral to your career success. Feeling overwhelmed during your studies, on electives or placements is common, and claims, investigations and inquiries can occur years after the healthcare services have been provided. So, choosing a Medical Defence Organisation that supports you today and best fits your long-term needs is important to do early in your career. Through our extensive industry experience and financial responsibility we offer support to medical students by providing FREE student membership and indemnity insurance cover. Membership benefits include a free subscription to The Electives Network for all you need to know during electives and discounts of up to 20% on a broad range of contemporary medical publications.
