What qualifications do you need to work as a Paediatrician in Australia and New Zealand?

The Specialist qualification in Australia and New Zealand is Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). You can compare your training program to the RACP training program to see if it is comparable in terms of content, duration, governance, and assessment. If so, it may be worth applying for Specialist Assessment in Australia or Vocational registration in New Zealand. International qualifications that are often deemed comparable include:

  • UK/Ireland – MRACP combined with the CCT (or CCST or JCHMT as appropriate)
  • Canada – Fellowship with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Canada
  • USA – Dual Board-Certified physicians.

“I have worked with Wavelength for the last 4 years or so. They have provided a sympathetic ear when there has been any sort of problem and done what they could to solve it. While in Sydney once my wife and I called into the Wavelength office and met some of the team, finding them as amiable and welcoming as they are over the phone. The coffee there was certainly better than International Roast, thank heavens!”

Dr Tony Weldon

Paediatric Consultant

“Wavelength is one of the most innovative and accommodating companies I came across. Their service is prompt and reliable. They know how to respond to individual needs. The customer's interest is their core business - a very refreshing and modern experience around a usually very encrusted and inflexible public health administration system.”
