Hi, guys, just like to ask if you are sick one day, will you choose to go private or government hospital?
My mum is considering going for knee replacement surgery due to her arthritis. She ask me if she could go private hospital?
I mean working as a junior in government hospital, I feel that the care isn't that bad, but of course I am not sure if private would be better as I have no experience myself.
(After all knee replacement is a Pretty straightforward surgery that can be done electively, so not sure if need to spend extra to go private..)

Simple surgeries = private
Complex surgeries = govt

Resident physician = doctor training to become a specialist

AC means they have finished residency and can now practice independently.

You confirm not from healthcare.
Residents = Specialist Trainee
Resident Physicians = Tied to a department, registrar equivalent. Permanent saikang, never a consultant. (s://.physician.mohh.com.sg/medicine/medical-service-career-path)
