Why Locum Doctors love Wavelength

  • 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
    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
    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.

    Dr Rosaleen
    Locum General Practitioner

What can you tell me about Indigenous Locum Doctor Jobs?

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.
