Hi, thank you very much for the insights! If I may know, how competitive is medical oncology in SG?

I've never said that I have publications on clinical research or speaker positions at medical conferences though, it's just some trainings on evidence-based medicine and systematic reviews, at either the local or national levels. Although most of my publications are SR/MAs, I am now trying to obtain more experience by jumping into clinical researches.

Default Path resident in aus

Hey guys,

Just wanted to get an opinion from all you experts here.

I'm a singaporean who studied in Aus and decided to stay here after completing my internship/HOship. Initially did internal med residency for 2 years but got disillusioned with clinical medicine so decided to switch to a non-clin specialty. I'm doing path residency now (rads didn't accept me) and really enjoying it. I married an Aussie girl (she's asian) and feel pretty settled here but i still miss Sg and am considering returning to the motherland after finishing my residency. Pathology is not a bad paying specialty here and lifestyle is pretty good (8-5 everyday, no calls as a resident). Just wondering if there are anyone knows what the prospects are like for a pathologist in Sg and whether it would be an enjoyable specialty or at least a reasonable one. I notice not many singaporeans go into path so wondering if its a really bad specialty there.

Thanks

Hmmm? Sure or not? Australia where got internal medicine residency? It's call basic physician training or bpt lei. Who u bruffing?
Pathology is self selecting. Theres a waiting list of pple wanting to enter in Singapore fyi. Usually wait is 2 to 3 years.
If u can find a job , it pays like other non procedural speciality.

Of cse, if u possess exquisite and rare histopathology skillets maybe u can command a premium .

Yes i am sure....why singaporeans always so sceptical. I say internal med cos i thought people wouldn't understand if I said bpt. did internship, then 3 years of bpt (i passed the written exam but haven't sat clinicals) and now doing pathology. and fyi its not that difficult to stay on in australia post medical school like many people believe. Just had to do a year in rural victoria but made it back to the city right after to do my bpt. thanks for your response anyways

I agree there are definitely a few cynical posters on this forum and truth to be told I am confused about the purpose of their posts. Maybe it is a source of entertainment for them. Regardless, it is always better to ask someone you may know rather than rely on anonymous posters for life changing decisions. I, too, am a Singaporean who is currently completing their residency overseas, so I can't be of much help to you.

What cynicism? It is reality.

Medicine is not made out to be what it is.

And I cannot understand why anyone would really want to go back to SG if they have the chance to migrate to Oz?
