  • Canada – Fellowship in Psychiatry or Certificate in Psychiatry from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Canada
  • USA – Certificate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology

I have been working with Wavelength for several years and have been extremely happy with their service. They were very pleasant and helpful with the accreditation process. They listened to my work and location preferences and have been able to accommodate them well.

Dr Andris Kalnins
Psychiatrist

The team at Wavelength are just fabulous. I have done a couple of long term locum Psychiatry jobs with them and they have always been very helpful, professional, caring and prompt. I have really enjoyed working with them and would highly recommend Wavelength to anyone looking for locum jobs. Well done the Wavelength team!

Dr Arun Gupta
Psychiatrist

Within 24hrs of signing up Wavelength had the contacts within the Hospital system to find me exactly the job I wanted, in the Hospital I wanted, in a major Australian city near my house - so I can both live in a major central city and locum there at the same time. I definitely recommended Wavelength, they are a pleasure to work with.
