Sure or not? I know FRACGP and CCFP they do that.
The obstetrics unit has FPs and Obs. NVD cases and simple cases needing vacuum the FP will handle as it is their patient. But can request consult from Obs if needed. If need C section then Obs will take over.

Mmed got so good at Obs meh?

The FRACGP and CCFP have a long history of being recognised as specialists in their own right for many decades, and are remunerated fairly similarly to their country hospital specialist counterparts.

They are not equivalent to the SG FM mmed because they are fully qualified to manage a lot more than our local FM mmeds as other posters have alluded to. If you want to be a FP who can practice anywhere in the world and feel confident enough to manage emergency surgical procedures or non-complex antenatal and paediatric care, then you should train for the FRACGP or CCFP and come back to Singapore to practice afterwards and raise the local standards of primary care.
