Appraisal time how? 2 set of bosses. You have to appeal to both.
Suck one set of balls already tired, now u have to suck two. You not bunny, ERM, Jan, cough, Jan.

Salary about there. Max u get is principal rp, salary about that of a matured AC. u locum easier can get more than that.
End of the day, if u can tong till the end and pass exams, your life easier and money not too bad for the effort.
If u Sian, don't want study, be a rp also can, but stay one department. Don't be rp in a&e la, u end up being equally skilled as the specialist but wonder why your salary lesser, plus the night shifts... you go locum 24 hours clinic surely match that. Stay community hospital, work Ur way up , rp, senior rp, principal rp.. if gung-ho, can do m.med as private candidate later, some Ch also accept mrcp which u confirm plus chop with Ch patient and their wonderful clinical signs, can pass. Public servicel end of the day, qualification counts.

Also, FM residency is like that one. Many extra stuff. Unless u going for gold medal, no need put too much effort. They will close one eye and pass you. The real litmus test is the part 2 clinical at m.med.

Many pple quit residency. This is different from sack from residency. No one cares.

If you pass through fm residency, but interested to work in ed/urgent care center (e.g in Ah or woodlands), would they hire you or are your skills totally irrelevant?
I am also fm resident, (year 3) but really not interested in ops/CH after working there as I like some acuity in my dailywork.

Why quit if you are going to be doing the same type of work anyway, ie working in OPS setting. Count yourself blessed you got a residency post and grit your teeth through tje additional paperwork. It's not going to be forever. Since you are halfway through might as well finish residency. The option to quit will still be there. Options...they are precious.

QUOTE=Unregistered;146303]Would appreciate some advice. Currently a year 2 FM resident, but not really enjoying residency due to the multiple paperwork, projects (qip/research) that we have to do.. ( I am actually ok with the clinical work in ops/community hospital)

I am pgy 5. So bond finished. Have previously worked in ed before. Also completed gdfm.
Thinking of quitting residency and becoming a RP either in ops/ed.

Can I ask if
1) quitting residency is seen as a big red flag? (I.e no public institution will hire you?)
2) Can I check if a resident physician typically earns around 8-9k whereas a senior RP earns slightly over 10k?
3) How much admin work (or extra clinical duties in the form of teaching/admin/research) does a rp needs to do as compared to a specialist consultant?
4) can resident physician (eg. Based in ops/ed) do locum during weekends or their off days?
5) also recently attend the woodlands campus roadshow, they are talking about hiring hospital clinicians who apparently can work in 2 different departments (e.g community hosp and ED) but not sure how true is this.
- I certainly wouldn't mind working in ed and community hospital if such an opportunity arises.(as I enjoy the clinical work for both)

Would appreciate advice from seniors, especially those who have joined and quitted a residency program.

Thanks[/QUOTE]

When u took the healing vows, you devote yourself to a life of
Poverty, chastity and charity.

Now you want to renege on your vows?

Hi, I am currently fm resident, finishing next year, (but will need another year to clear exam as fm exams are done in r4). I have worked in ops/comm hospital but don't really like both. I am interested in joining urgent care center/maybe locum in eds. (Have done ed posting before). Was wondering if there is a possibility that fm people can working urgent care center or eds after they graduate or are our skills completely irrelevant?

I enjoy urgent care center/ed work as I like some degree of acuity in my daily work, and get to do some procedure as well (e.g t&s, avulsion etc)
