The whole point of getting foreign trained doctors Is to boost the local public sector.
It was never the intention to let them go to lucrative (pre-covid) private sector.

Furthermore, the point is always to capture quality foreign docs, appoint them as professors and pay them competitively and let them stay in the public system to educate the young docs and share their expertise.

But it doesnt really matter. Coz pay is the same in the public sector.
However now with covid, pte sector is doing very badly , so staying with public is the best option
Foreign trained physicians can do more than just boost the public sector. With their diverse training background, they provide a fresh perspective to the system as a whole and can do good work regardless of private or public.

I doubt any self-respecting physician who is fully licensed in developed countries would allow the system to take advantage of them for longer than the "minimum" period.

So long as the public sector's pay is somewhat comparable to private sector, there would be minimal incentive for physicians to leave the public sector. Fear is never a sustainable motivator in the long term.

Are you sure GP with fellowships are paid 25k at OPS/under chain 17k? Is this with or without bonus? Doesn't make sense that public OPS pays more than private chains?

Take what u read with a big pinch of salt on the internet la
Obviously the guy who spam that info and a list of doc with fracgp is a
Internet troll. Surf around , gather some information and just spam to misled pple

25k per mth as a family physciain with the polyclinic is possible
You just need to be the CEO of the cluster.
You can make about 180 to 250k as head, deputy head of a polyclinic. How many of them in Singapore?
Not a lot la. Also, not many want that job. Very headache one, I get emails sent out at 2am by my clinic heads ok. If want so many headache might as well chiong be a specialist in the first place. Tahan 6 years of night calls life much easier later on.

17k as private hired gp? Possible but u probably working 11 hours a day for 6 days a week. Mostly around 13 to 14k for a few nights and Saturday.

Ops not easy place to work if you want to do a good job. Patients very complicated, everything walk thru the door. Ops prefer m.med doc nowadays for that reason. I find private gp life easier clinically.. Mostly MC seeking, some minor complaints, simple diabetes , hypertension. Anything complicated refer to the poor ops family physician to sort out. But private gp got their own struggles la.

What sort of struggles does private gp (esp those employed under chain clinics) have? My understanding that they mainly do clinical work with little/minimal admin or research commitments, unlike their counterparts in the public sector. And their pay appear to be higher too on average

There are 20 Polyclinics in sg. So 20 Heads and 20 deputy heads.

Many foreign drs in IMC. Not from India or Asia.

I dont think they would work for small peanuts.
