General Practice

Overview

There are currently over 45,000 general practitioners in Australia and GPs make up the majority of the medical workforce.

With a dedicated General Practice Division focusing on both permanent and locum GP positions, Wavelength offers unrivalled job opportunities in family medicine and other related areas.

For almost 20 years, Wavelength has worked with thousands of GPs looking for clinical practice roles in metropolitan, regional and remote areas across Australia and New Zealand. In particular, GPs with emergency, obstetric and anaesthetic skills are in high demand in outback areas.

Whilst we find that the majority of GP roles are based in the community, there are many opportunities for GPs to take up positions in the emergency departments of larger hospitals or even running entire hospitals in remote communities.

As well as recruiting doctors locally, Wavelength works with many GPs from comparable healthcare countries (particularly the UK and Ireland). Our General Practice Division facilitates the relocation process to make it as seamless as possible providing help and advice at every stage. Wavelength’s in-house migration agents provide accurate and speedy visa applications.

Earning capacity for GPs varies greatly from role to role but most GPs can expect to earn salaries of at least between $200,000 to $300,000 per year with lucrative locum rates also on offer.

In addition to general family medicine, our General Practice Division also offers roles in the following areas:

  • Minor surgery
  • Family Planning
  • Tropical Medicine
  • Procedural Obstetrics
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Indigenous Medicine
  • Correctional Health
  • Corporate Health

“It was a big change for me from working at the General Practice for 30 years to doing locum work. Having friendly and professional staff at Wavelength made it so much easier to do. I would recommend Wavelength International to my colleagues and friends and in fact I have done so several times.”

Dr Kingsley Pearson

General Practitioner

“Thank you so much for your great work! I have worked with Wavelength for more than 2 years. And they always successfully manage to find excellent locums at great locations at a time that is convenient for me. They look after all the paperwork and negotiations and follow up with me consistently to ensure I was satisfied.  My last two locums have been with Anna Mullins, their locum consultant- she has been supportive, friendly, competent and just superb! I would recommend this agency to any GP choosing to do locums around Australia.”

Dr Sejal Mishra

General Practitioner

“Wavelength international were excellent from the start. They really guided me through the forms and made the whole process much easier. Everything was explained well and we are so glad now that we made this amazing move. I am now in my new role on the central coast and loving every minute of the Oz life. I would highly recommend going with Wavelength if considering moving to Australia!!”

Dr Nikolas Davies

General Practitioner

“The level of individual support and attention given to me by the Wavelength team always makes me feel as though I am their only Client; knowing very well that isn't the case. They are all very dedicated and take the greatest pride in their work. With all of them looking out for my best interests, I have the best support. All I can say to them is a big Thank you!”
