Because of that I'm kind of depressed and wondering if I can do something else altogether. I know it will waste my 5 years of medical training and all but I believe this is for the best. I was thinking of Australia as an option to further my medical career but I can't bear to leave my family behind as well. I also want to settle down and be capable of feeding my family (especially after the wrong decision of spending half a million studying medicine) . Any senior advice will be very much appreciated. I'm quite stuck and not sure what I should do next. Should I locum? Where to locum? Open a GP clinic? But that needs a lot of capital too.
Are you able to share why you are jaded with the system? Is it because of the long working hours? And 30 hours shift?

Do you know how long more will it takes for you to get your medical license?
