Head Medical are approved suppliers to some of the largest mental health service providers across Australia. We have placed Psychiatrists in every State, and understand the unique differences between them with regard to healthcare delivery.

Australia offers Psychiatrists the opportunity to live and work in a different country, develop their careers, and enjoy a rewarding lifestyle for themselves and their families. Salaries and allowances are generous, and healthcare systems and hospitals are well-funded, well-equipped, and developmentally progressive.

Please note that since 2015 the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) guidelines for assessing internationally-trained Consultant Psychiatrists have tightened up considerably. Please get in touch to discuss these requirements, and the likelihood of a successful assessment. 

Currently sought Psychiatry subspecialities include:

  • General Adult (Community and/or Inpatient)
  • Child and Adolescent
  • Forensic
  • Prison 

I also welcome expressions of interest from Old Age, Liaison and Addiction Psychiatrists. 

Psychiatrists who have completed CCT in the UK and achieved MRCPsych through examination will be regarded highly by employers. FRANZCPs interested in 1.0 FTE or sessional work are also encouraged to get in touch as I work with many private hospitals in each state.

Some of our current opportunities for Psychiatrists in Australia include:

Clinical Director Mental Health – Western Australia – Permanent

Rehabilitation Psychiatry –  Queensland – Permanent

General Adult Psychiatrist – New South Wales – Permanent

Addictions Psychiatrist – Queensland – Permanent
