Indigenous Locum Doctor Jobs

While it is well-known that locum doctors receive higher rates and greater flexibility to work when and where they want, there are many other benefits that make locum doctor jobs a truly rewarding experience.

We help doctors find locum jobs all over the region, but perhaps the most unique and rewarding experience we offer is the chance to practice Indigenous health with a locum job in some of Australia's most remote communities. Without our locum medical recruitment services, many of these communities would be without adequate medical care.

Outback locum jobs are the antithesis of medicine in cities. I go back to first principles and am often the difference between a medical service staying open and being shut down. It’s a truly humbling and rewarding experience and I can thank Wavelength for helping me find the best locum jobs.

Dr Amin Sadruddin
Locum General Practitioner

The locum team at Wavelength are just fabulous. I have done several long term locum jobs with them and they have always been very helpful, professional, caring and prompt. I highly recommend Wavelength to any doctor looking for locum jobs in Psychiatry.

Dr Arun Gupta
Locum Psychiatrist

My locum work has never been more fulfilling; I have learned new skills, seen many fascinating places and met many interesting people since enrolling with Wavelength. Before each locum job I receive exact details of my travel and accommodation, they contact me on day one to see that induction has taken place and that I have no concerns with the clinic. I highly recommend Wavelength.
