Just to add, orthopaedics is fairly competitive as Singapore has a lot of orthopods being a popular specialist choice. But with the recent expansions and ongoing attrition to the private sector (where many surgeons earn heaps more like SGD$500000 a year, but with different overheads, and only applicable to fully registered practitioners) there should be open jobs available

Thanks a lot for the info.

How much would a US trained/board certified anesthesiologist make as a conditionally registered and, assuming he becomes fully registered, how much in private practice? Would sub-specialty training such as pediatric anesthesia make a difference? Is there much demand for anesthesiologists?

I've been in practice in the US for 9 years post training and I'm looking to make a change, even if it means a pay cut.

Conditional registered will earn the same as for full registered specialist in a public hospital. Prob earn as much as an emergency consultant.... For the US it will depend how many years after board exam rather than residency so say you are 9 years post board, you can get a senior consultant post which pays about 350000-400000 per year (including allowances and bonuses).... U will need to work in a public hospital at least 5 years before private practice... In general private practice pays 400000 upwards.....depending on your popularity and how hard you work most anaesthetist can bring home a lot more

There is always a demand for anaesthetist in the public sector.... Paeds anaesthesia may get u some additional allowances or allow you to work in children's hospital.

Thanks (both of you?) for your answers. One last question if I may, is it easier to go through recruiters or should I be emailing resumes directly to hospitals?

Since you already have some inside info you can email hospitals directly to cut out the middle man unless you are not sure which hospital to apply to.... But u can decide either way.
I think the two newest hospitals were already mentioned and these would be actively recruiting.

The other major hospitals are
Tan tock Seng hospital www.ttsh.com.sg
National university hospital Patients & Visitors::National University Hospital
Changi general hospital Home - Changi General Hospital, Singapore
Singapore general hospital Singapore General Hospital Home ? Singapore General Hospital

That's entirely up to you. But you can apply direct and deal with the HR directly without needing to go thru a middle man (or pay extra fees) there are only 6 public hospitals anyway.
