The only good one I can think of is to go to India.
I thought last time got report that India has highest rate of fake medical degrees in the world? Maybe thats why India is a better country to get admitted into medical school?

Got a fake Indian doctor even managed to lecture in Duke-NUS medical school for years, and it was only until he migrated to USA that he got caught by US authorities! Moral of story is, if you graduate from India it is definitely better to work in Singapore because Singapore don't check India's medical qualifications strictly. Other developed countries like USA, Canada, Australia don't allow Indian doctors to work in their countries that easily.

It is true.

Google his name
You will realise even our sshsph prof (my epidemiology prof when I was in yllsom M1, now she is full prof at Duke nus) couldn't identify him as a scam

This speak volume abt the quality of Indian doctors
Even those with effy qualifications can converse very knowledgeably abt the subject that sinkie doc cannot accurately determine their background

There are bad apples everywhere, even among SG doctors.

Nope. There are way too many doctors in Singapore. Oversupply. There are literally hundreds of thousands of doctors from USA, UK, NZ, Australia wanting to move to Singapore too. And millions from India.

Thanks. Itís difficult to discern genuine advice and trolls on this forum. I would be more inclined to believe you if your English language werenít as rudimentary.

Honestly it feels like you're just looking for self-validation of a decision you already made. There were unbiased links others have posted before showing you the cost of living, salaries and standards of medicine and and other well meaning advice from genuine local practitioners living locally and abroad regarding practicing in Singapore.

If you ignore the overly positive salutatory remarks made by the foreign Indian doctors for whom English isn't their first language and Singapore is godsend compared to where they were originally from, then as a reasonably intelligent person you would be able to form your own conclusion.
