What our doctors have to say

  • “The whole medical registration process seemed so daunting at first, I almost gave up. Thanks to Wavelength, my dream to work as a GP in Australia is now a reality. With Wavelength’s help, the whole process seemed like a pleasant walk in the park!”

    Dr Pavel Belokopytov
    General Practitioner
  • “Throughout the process of my move from the United Kingdom to Australia, the Wavelength Migration team provided timely support and excellent service, being accessible and responsive at all times. Moving countries is understandably stressful and I remember having so many uncertainties, the team was able to contain that anxiety professionally and provided succinct and accurate expectations and suggestions at the time of my application.”
