How does MO's annual salary progression track this?
so good
Dr v poor thing
not like IT or law
start 3.6K
every year 2-3% increment
study v hard become reg maybe 1K increment
study v hard become consultant maybe 2k increment
become consultant liao life easier a bit, no need source for clients; u have so many patient that you wish u have lesser.

but got free kopi from consultant after morning rounds as a junior. I think i never drank so much starbucks in my life.
Nurses / dietician / psychologist love us a lot -> trophy husband if u are a guy. Bring home mother /father nod in approval. If want can change g/f every year.
That's about it.

become lawyer better
become IT better
can earn 10x doctor salary -> confirm mother / father in law also kowtow to you (whats a nod of approval for doctors right)
