Need to have a civilised people to have free healthcare.
The people need to understand about collective good, and not abuse the system
It is a safety net if people do not abuse it

Unfortunately Most Asians have not reach that level of civil mindedness and hence will abuse free healthcare as we are greedy

That's exactly what the Singaporeans, Hongkies and PRCs say too.

lol

No civility. Kiasu Kiasi. Free will take all and everything.

Not all cultures are like that.

Yea all above board. It is not a shell company.

What happens to the corporation after you retire?

Can it be inherited by your children?

Nowadays I also donít know why so many people still want to be Doctors.
1. Almost 0% chance of specialise
2. Stay in hospital work like dog get paid like **** get treated like ****
3. Go outside same thing as 2, but with TPA and Private medical groups.

With the grades for medicine you can just get into dentistry or computer science and live a comfortable stress free life. Donít need worry this worry that. Donít need take this exam take that exam, see people get dragged into the hospital at 3am while ur on call with a severe trauma or internal bleeding.

Itís a matter of time before the general public realises that those that are sitting comfortably in Mount Elizabeth are from the stone ages and not representative of current day Doctors. Itís gonna be like China where no one in their right mind would want to get into medicine. Then good luck to NUS and NTU when start accepting international students into medical school.

It is closed when I retire.

I can route money into a Family Trust Fund for the children.

The inheritance plan is through the Family Trust Fund

Hi all, Currently a HO, interested in the medical field (hate surgery).Was wondering if IM or FM is a better option in this current climate?

I am not overly ambitious (mainly interested in clinical and patient contact and not exactly interested in doing extra admin work), I am kind of ok to do both (IM/FM) as long as there are jobs.

Any advice?

Do IM may get screwed by hosp admin. Do FM may get screwed by TPA.
Essentially both the same.

Long term wise IM con dont need work night shifts and weekends but GP needs
Both about same pay long term

How competitive is the cosmetic industry in SG (Injectables and Lasers etc.)?

Are lasers and injectables limited to physicians or can anyone open their own medispa and start injecting or performing laser procedures?
