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

The specialist qualification in Australia and New Zealand is Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP). You can compare your training program to the RANZCP training program to see if it is comparable in terms of content, duration, governance and assessment. If so, it may be worth you applying for Specialist Assessment in Australia or Vocational registration in New Zealand.

International Psychiatry qualifications that are often deemed comparable include:

  • UK/Ireland – MRCPsych combined with the CCT (or CCST or JCHMT as appropriate)
  • 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

All our Doctors have access to expert advice on the registration process with the College, AHPRA and Medicare, plus migration advice from our in-house registered migration agents.

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.
