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
