When I approached Wavelength, the team gave me Psychiatry job options and eased me through the complex procedure of accreditation and assessment. Even when I landed, the consultants made sure I was settling into my new Psychiatry job and couldn’t have been more helpful. I would highly recommend Wavelength to all my medical colleagues who wish to work in Australia.
