Wavelength’s specialist Emergency Medicine Team partners with emergency departments across the region to offer the best jobs currently available within this dynamic specialty.

In nearly 20 years, Wavelength has established strong relationships with Directors in over 300 hospitals across Australia and New Zealand. Emergency doctors not only resuscitate arrests and treat trauma and injuries, but they are also responsible for stabilising all critically ill medical admissions.

And while the majority of emergency attendances occur in public sector hospitals, we are also finding that fee-for-service emergency medicine is now being practised in a growing number of private hospitals.

Our Emergency Medicine Doctors experience high levels of job satisfaction due to the wealth of varied, unpredictable and challenging permanent and locum opportunities available in remote, rural and urban locations. 

We currently have numerous emergency medicine opportunities available requiring decisiveness, teamwork, resilience and excellent interpersonal skills, as well as a breadth of knowledge across all facets of medicine.

Locum Emergency Medicine consultant day rates range from $2000 to $2800 per day with permanent salaries dependent on seniority. Junior doctors can expect salaries of approximately $76,000 to $93,000 per year and middle grade doctors approximately $88,000 to $125,000 per year. Emergency consultant packages start from $220,000 to $440,000 per year.

Locum Emergency Medicine placements vary from weekend on-call coverage to six months at a time depending on preference.

“Wavelength offers an excellent end to end professional service. From my initial placement in Bunbury WA to locum assignments, they presented compelling opportunities, representing me at the highest level, scheduling interviews, providing feedback, and securing me a new role. I would highly recommend Wavelength to my colleagues and I do.”

Dr Geoff Pincham
