You should. U only got one life.
Do what u like.
One year penalty then one year penalty
They make it sound like mmed(fm) is everything.
But actually really just do what you like.

Whether u wanna rotate to im or ortho up to you.
But these too specs a bit too different. So make up your mind

Unfortunately I think in the fm field, the unscrupulous people are the ones who make the most money. They tend to work in private sector/asthestics, and recommend all the extra tests and medications to earn the extra money. (For example, I was given 5 different meds just for a urti. I don't mind as I can claim up to 90% from my employer- i.e mohh)
The good fps are the ones in polyclinic, they study hard follow guidelines, practice evidence based medicine, but get paid the least.

The irony of life lol

in ancient china, you study hard to get a court official.
but if you are not corrupt, you live a life of poverty as a court official
this why there is this concept of 高薪养廉
high salary to prevent corruption

in singapore, the doctors pay are low
to earn more, you have to go to the pte sector.
but pte sector is not a bed of roses
and your customers need to be fee paying (not TPA or not integrated shield)
as integrated shield wont empanel you. and TPA pay $5.

so who willing to pay in cash?
aesthetics. hence only aesthetic medicine is worthwhile

How is hard is neurosurg and cardiothoracic compared to the others? Job scope wise or? Apart from more years of being a resident.

Is it still possible to be a private gp nowadays without venturing into asthestic medicine? I feel that the private gp market is so competitive now, that if you don't do asthestic, you may not be able to keep the clinic running?
