Default Getting MBBS/MD in China and practise in USA/Singapore?

FYI, i'll be graduating from NUS after 3 years. I have a mind to become to study MBBS/MD in China and practise overseas, preferably in Singapore. However, the Singapore Medical Council requires doctors educated in China to have at least a MD. A MD in China is 8 years, so that's a huge investment. Is it better to settle for a MBBS (6 years) and take USMLE to practise in USA?

Anyone knowledgeable about this niche route? Please do share your opinions.

Why not quit NUS and then -3 +8 = 5 < 6 years for MD?

NUS degree is a safety net. And the degree (Computer Science) I'm studying for is in high demand, although the financial remuneration may not scale as well as doctors'.

To be honest, if you dont have the intelligence to get into medicine here in Singapore, you should just forget it. This is people's lives at stake, not just about making money. Not smart enough, don't dream so much.

I'm not so concerned about him not being able to enter the local med school. heck, go to any hospital in singapore and you'll see tons of doctors from foreign med schools.

What I'm more concerned about is a doctor who is in it just for the financial remuneration. And a doctor who thinks he needs a computer science degree as a safety net.

It's a sad day for the medical profession..Young man, u should go join and work for the best investment bank with your computer science degree...Please dnt enter the medicine profession unless u hv the heart to save lives!

Likewise in future if u wan to serve the society, truly work for your fellow citizens...for the betterment of their lives...join e govt...This is what happens when we priorities growth at all cost...we forgot about the basic human nature of caring for each other...the sharing..the helping of fellow brothers in need...our society is very sick...very very sick...everyone only interested to make the most money in the fastest timeframe...n join the WIM...Real sad...whatever our forefathers builds over so many years...WILL BE DESTROYED BY US all in time to come...

For those for r able...please save yourself..migrate if possible otherwise...better not to have any children unless u r sure u can groom them up to be useful person for the society!
