Donít be so bad to Dukies. It was their lifelong ambition and wish to be a doctor.

The more time u spend in wards the better ur clinical skills are.

Dukies spend v little time.

While they are not good clinically, they definitely are better at research.
The average dukie publish far more.

Everybody has their strengths. We shouldnt compare too much

My experience is lkc students are the best clinically for ho and mo.
Then yllsom.
Then img
Then dukies.

However this is representative of the prototypical student i see in wards and the ones i took for tutorials

Im pretty sure there are star dukie students who has clinical skills and common sense

In that case the dukies likely end up more in NUH. Also likely to occupy leadership positions given the publishing rate. Stay in public sector more too?

My impression is that they mostly become GPs

What schools are you referring to? The list of recognized overseas schools have been revised. The IMG representation in training is surprisingly high, have a look at the current trainees even in competitive residencies and youíll notice quite a fair bit of them are overseas trained.

Currently deciding between going to med sch or going for a top business program. How many of you, with your current knowledge and experience of being a doctor, would not mind doing it again? Or would you rather pursue something else other than medicine?

If youíre in it for the money you should reconsider. It takes quite a lot of sacrifice to earn a great salary. However, it is a comfortable job if you foresee yourself being mediocre in whatever profession/career you choose to do. The average MBBS holder earns a comfortable salary doing a secure routine job after the initial training years.
