Duke-NUS is 4 years. Specialization program 3-4 years. You are looking at about 10 years total to become specialist.

Annual income of medical specialist is around $2,000,000 a year.

Totally worth it!

10 years including housemanship?
I donít make much in law hence I want to switch.
I heard doctors are also much nicer, yes stressful and all. But law firms are not any better.

Yes 10 years including housemanship. That's the minimum of course. Could be longer depending how you perform/pass exams etc. The money in medicine is the best in Singapore. Which is why so many people still want to do medicine. Recession proof as well. Guaranteed money. It is like winning the lottery. Most doctors retire before the age of 50. But in your case you might have to settle for 60.

For law depends what kind of law you practice. I know those corporate lawyers doing things like M&A they can make millions a year too. In fact even better than doctors. Be one of those lawyers work for bank. Actually anything work for bank is the way to go. Accountant working for bank, lawyer working for bank, secretary working for bank, IT working for bank. I don't think banks hire doctors though. The key is the bonus. End of the year the bank do well you suddenly got 12 months of salary in your bank account (means worked extra year just like that!) Medicine doesnt have that. Also medicine is very boring. No boom times or bust times all same.

Medical specialists definitely do not earn $2,000,000 a year please.

Your answers were already sus at the beginning and I'm surprised the lawyer you were supposedly advising couldn't tell, him being a lawyer and all. But anyway, the troll always reveals himself because he can't help taking the pi ss out of people for some perverse reason.

To the person asking if its worthwhile doing Duke-NUS, specialisation is NOT guaranteed, neither is $2,000,000 per year, which is even more unlikely
