ideally only one doctor should be inside a call room
the doctor assigned to that call room that night.
pls note that outside the room there will be cctv.

Sometimes can be husband and wife on call together. Reg and consultant. Nurse and dr.
CCTV is good for security and safety. But consenting adults shouldn't be too much of a problem.

I am glad that they have made the work hours a little less insane. This whole excuse about teaching and learning is bullshit. You and I know that it is about labor. Manning the department. The wards. Doing the scud work.

There is very little to learn when all you are doing is running around and doing menial work with no time to think about what you are actually doing from a clinical standpoint.

Is it tough to switch residencies after 1 year? I am in FM, and am thinking of switching to IM or ortho, but am not sure if it's possible and worth the try

FM u finish liao u officially a family physician. Want to call it a day u stay polyclinic and work with relatively good salary no need study anymore. Want go out setup shop u more than qualified.
Want more challenges u can do a fellowship also and do community hospital work. Every hospital got a community hospital beside it. Up to you to shape what u want to do. Palliative, dementia care , u want more hot patients who are more unwell also can, most gen med department will be more than happy to send their more acute post acute patient to you.
Im u have to fight for senior residency. With a mrcp or m.med internal medicine, u not on an register of any specialization lei. You can't call urself an internist yet, u setup private gp clinic learning curve is steep since outpatient med with Peds, obgy ,msk stuff not your forte.
Even if u win a sr place, life very siong lei. It's back to 3 more tough years, u supervise young resident am on ward round, see blue letter , run around beck and call at the con, run outpatient clinic , do overnight call, weekend calls plus have to study plus plus since u are going to be a specialist, cannot say dunno liao. If u do procedure field like gastro or cards need to do lots of practice.
Ortho wise? Come on la, so many pple want. U try lor.

U have to quit Ur family med. Penalise one year cannot apply. Then apply next year. Your batch mate probably finish m.med , find a X2 Ur mo salary job at polyclinic liao while u just start r1. Gungho one do fellowship become associate consultant at community hospital and u just finish Ur mrcp. They start to kiao Kar while u sweat that u cannot find a sr position..then start to regret why u made the stupid jump

Until u realise u didn't because of what I just posted.
