Ask a question respectfully knowing things have changed you so rude. You are the new generation.
Modernising medical career for uk started in 2005, you must be at least 40plus now.
Because a good number of seniors are trained in the uk, so i thought they would be familar with terms like HO and SHO, which became FY1 And FY2.
Im sorry. Thought people that frequent this site are the youngsters.

Apologies to 前辈

Default Full reg

The criteria stated in SMC website based on years of conditional reg to obtain full registration is the minimum. You will need an endorsement letter from CMB, usually with a letter of support from the head of your department. Needless to say this will be contingent on satisfactory performance but usually is not difficult. So there is some subjective element to it. But day to day practice and work as a consultant whether under conditional or full reg is the same

Thanks. Finally got proper answer.

Is there any document that publishes the average remuneration for various specialties in SG?

In the US, there is Medscape and MGMA data which allows for a good approximation but can't find the same for SG physicians.

Thanks in advance.

Awesome. What are your thoughts on practising in SG vs USA?

I'm completing my residency in medical specialty in the East Coast next year and considering the move to SG after to start my family.

All the best to you and your family.

Each system has its own problems and benefits.

I would say the requirements of your personal life decide where you should practice.

I do prefer the education system and stricter laws in SG, so it will be a safer place to raise a kid. However, my career would also be a huge deciding factor.
