Any plans on how to advance beyond this ceiling? Climb hospital administrator route? Cosmetics?
Try to get Psc lms or president scholarship at JC. This way u can ascend up the ceo quick then minister quick.

But if you buay gan, farmer yllsom. Then must either go the

Slog it hard way in public:
nowadays hosp ceo tend to be senior clinician.
A typical NUS yllsom grad CEP at age 45 is senior con.
Continue to take on more projects, quality improvement, spearhead events, develop new service, lead jci audits, also must publish and be leader of your field
Then become hod > cmb > ceo
But again these positions require a combination of luck and hard work
Must come to work at 7 and leave at 11pm daily

Or the slog it hard way in pte:
There are 3 option
Go out become gp , set up own shop
Go out be aesthetics , set up own shop
Go sell insurance be the top of the table, or be real estate agents. Use your contacts to sell things.

Mother Teresa was not a doctor.
You dont need to be a doctor to touch livez.
In fact being a doctor ties your hands in many things ethic and professionally from doing many things.

Yeah almost no win. Think leave medicine and start new career in finance and banking is the way to go. Medicine is more low level frontline service. One patient at a time. Even as specialist you still treat patients one at a time. Trade time for money. No passive income. No promotion where you manager sit back sit in meetings, advisory role, directorship etc.

Have you heard about news that one surgeon was ordered to pay millions for liposuction death ?

If you want to make money, medicine does not really make business sense. Finance is a much, much better choice.

Don't simply follow parents or friends to study medicine. To a certain degree, parents want you to study medicine for family glory or 面子。

I may be a stranger to you. But I am possibly more honest than all people known by you.

Thank you. I love this. Every aspiring doctor needs to see this. Do it for the passion, not the money. You'll probably be broke after medical school anyways.

No. That was a general surgeon doing liposuction
Liposuction should be only done by plastic surgeon.

There is still good money, as a plastic surgeon.
Provided u are willing to train for twenty years.
5 years med sch.
5 years mo rotation to get into plastics
10 years pure brutal hard work doing plastics recon
At 21st year u can do lots of liposuction, augmentation
