Yes on average 2-3 years.

What's the most competitive residency in Singapore?

Neurosurgery? Plastic surgery? Dermatology? Ophthalmology?

If Singaporean students study Medicine in the UK, can they work beyond FY1/2 and get a training post there, or are they expected to return back after FY1/2?

Definitely. That's like 20k a month before bonus. Most consultant earn around 300k/year after bonus. If you are doing procedure, (i.e surgery or cardio or gastro) can easily hit 0.5 million (500k a year)

If you are a procedurist going private, can prob make 500k a month if you are really famous.

You will have to apply to MOH to see if they will allow.

What is FY1 and FY2?

MRCS doesnt matter for GPs.
