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.
v long history meh.
but wow
Sg already can operate and u mean to say ccfp and fracgp even better?
indeed we should hire these foreign talents.
suggest we shut down local med school and hire these overseas super FM speciliast. 1 can do the job of 10. pay them 5 local fp salary and we already got a bargain. in fact em, GS and obgyn and paeds speciality can shut down liao.
