And you can locum in your off day to supplement your income (something that Drs in ops can't do)
U will be asked to anchor, and be responsible for that clinic profit

Chain hire u also have no locum contract clause.

Besides, u work all day , Saturday morning and probably 2 evening a week and u still want to locum? U pro.
If anything ,u work ops, u got more time ( but no necessary energy) to locum.
TPA and rent increase is real. They eat into profits and your salary eventually.

Go out if u dun want or can't study and pass exams. But be prepared to be squeezed. There is a price to pay for just being a mbbs and that is a sacrifice of your time. At one point aesthetic was good ..but everyone starts to come in too.
At ops, patient keep coming but sometimes got spare pockets of time chill a bit quite nice. In gp land , no patient come u feel stress from no income.
If I were to setup my clinic, I rather find a ulu spot, pay low rent , dun take TPA and see a good 20 to 30 cases a day and manage them properly. But then again , I'm properly trained and not Ur mbbs only.

Best is become specialist la. Do some knowledge based speciality like haematology , infectious disease or endocrine where it's more consultative in nature. Dun do gen med , cardio , gen surgery where u bear the grunt. Last time community hospital not too bad but heard getting worse also.

Sigh itís very difficult. Law girls can be difficult too. 24-25 I would have dated them and perhaps if they stayed on would have been married. But now at 30 I have a lot of difficulty. As they say, if they were more humble, accepting, not so choosy when younger, it would have been easier to get married

I don't think anyone's goal should be to "get married". If can't find a suitable partner, it's probably in women's better interest to stay single (unless they die die want to have children).

With 50% of marriages ending in divorce, it is going to be a toss up anyway.
