Currently fm r2, feeling super jaded. I have no more bond left and have gdfm; only thing is that I probably lack ops experience given that most of the ops postings are in year 3 of residency. (My main polyclinic exp is from rcc which is more to do with chronic conditions)

I personally want to just go gp land in the long term eventually. Part of me is telling me to just complete residency, gain the ops experience and hopefully mmed (if I miraculously pass which I doubt since I am planning to leave immediately after residency and not join the prep course crap), other part of me is to tell me to leave now (esp given the locum rates at CTF etc, which will probably not be around when I finish residency next year)

I am also struggling with my other requirements like qip, 20 cases etc (they actually reduce from 40 to 20 &#128514
I am personally undecided..was wondering if anyone can give any advice?
it's too late for you liao la.
this Omicron looks very mild and spreading like wildfire

with vaccination and Omicron our immunity already learning how to fight this.
will become just another respiratory virus next year

u guai gaui tong and finish ur ba. u nhg or nuh one ? no prep course v hard to pass de. if u nhg, many year 100 percent pass rate liao. plus u have to pay exams on ur own and in reality u start to mature as a fp only after ur residency in r4. I say u become a real fp in r5 or r6 like that.

going private is one way trip and not worth it unless u plan to eventually open ur own clinic, being a hired gp is also a bitter struggle with no end. in polyclinic at least got respite can teach student , resident, research..can take MC many many . if u girl go no pay leave year after year while being pregnant. stress with life apply no pay leave for 1 year.
become senior enough u slack see 25 patient a day clinic head also can't do **** to you. as a hired gp, u will be shown the door.
