has anyone actually asked a consultant or is aware of how much they earn?

if a gen med con earns at least 15k with hours like 8-5pm on weekdays and perhaps weekend rounds isn't that a pretty cruisy life (though I dont know for sure what the salary range is)

it's the juniors that are underpaid..

But not everybody can become con

Not everybody can become partner in law or accounting

In senior positions you are not compensated solely based on the hours you work but on the responsibilitied you take on. And maybe a little for your "expertise"

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.

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

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.
