Overview

The practice of Psychiatry in Australia and New Zealand is highly advanced with an evidence-based practice model dominating a variety of subspecialties.

The frequency of mental illness together with new research and innovation ensures Psychiatry plays an increasingly important role in medicine and society.

With a dedicated Psychiatry Team, Wavelength provides lucrative locum and permanent Psychiatry job opportunities and career advice for Psychiatrists at all seniority levels.

With many longstanding and exclusive private and public health relationships, Wavelength has access to a large network of healthcare employers. Psychiatry provides real opportunities to build a flexible and rewarding career thanks to flexible training arrangements, standard business hours, less frequent on-call shifts and opportunities for travel.

Our specialist Psychiatry Team has seen a growing demand for locums in the past two years with a 40 percent increase in placements. This has been driven by a shift of Psychiatrists from the public to the private network, opening up the number of locum Psychiatry opportunities within public hospitals.  More hospitals in metropolitan locations such as Brisbane and Perth also now have funding to use locum Psychiatrists on a regular basis.

Psychiatry is renowned for being a particularly lucrative specialty. Locum Psychiatrists can expect $2,000+ per day plus all accommodation and travel expenses depending on location. Permanent Specialist Psychiatrists can expect to earn between $250,000 to $400,000 per year depending on experience, seniority and location. Psychiatry Registrars and CMOs can expect to earn between $85,000 to $250,000 per year.

Our dedicated Psychiatry Team provides expert career advice and some of the best Psychiatry job opportunities currently available in the following subspecialties:

  • General Adult Psychiatry
  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Forensic Psychiatry
  • Old Age Psychiatry (Psychogeriatrics)
  • Indigenous Psychiatry
  • Consultation Liaison Psychiatry
  • Addiction Psychiatry
