Beri hard. Just stick with original si.

Complete residency first.
Once u complete alr, u have four months before mmed.
Then u can quit. But first complete residency.


or rage quit residency and take gdfm. And go other polys.

If you join private gp land after you complete your FM residency, you can still take mmed exam right? (Of course you won't get any financial reimbursement and your chances of failure is higher) but joining gp land after fm residency is still allowed right?

Actually you can just ask your PD / seniors these questions.
But yes you can leave after residency and still take MMed as private candidate.

Not the smartest idea to tell/ask your PD about going private?

Does family medicine residency allow you to earn more than a GDFM?

Yes.

FM is really better trained then gdfm
I'm a gdfm graduate.


Compared to my classmates that went thru mmed, I realize I'm not as good as them for certain things

? Hide this hide that for what. M.meder still in demand in polyclinic. U are just a bit more expensive than a gfdm but u can do a lot more so always preferred.
U can sit for m.med as long as u have a certificate of completion of residency and pass your audit project.

Only thing is you got to pay for the exam urself lei.
Prep course also cost money. Easily 15 to 20k.

Plus a lot of whether u pass the m.med is the 4 months post residency where u mug and Kenna drilled by Ur seniors.

gfdm fp and m.med fp is different level much as gdfmers dont like to believe.
One is part time course over 2 years with 8 hour lecture per module for 8 module. Only requirement is attendance. Exam is 100 mcq. Clinical is easier with 10 minute station where the sp and the examiner is same person. You don't even have to exhibit real clinical exam skills. U tell them what u want to check , they tell u the clinical findings. This exam test that u can handle 80 percent of office consults

M.med diff ball game lei. You got to pass each of the rotations with regular osces. You die from the variety of rotations. Lots of Procedure to sign off. Courses to attend. Research, audit project requirements. Seniors sit in with u for consults and critise u. Regular clinical competency committee track Ur progress and see whether u can advance or not. It's like sitting for Ur MBBS part 2 in hell mode.

Exam 250 mcq. Standard of mcq is one that the usa use to certify their fp. Clinical is proper sp. Patient have real signs. Cases are complicated. There's more stations and exams take place over 1 month. The exam is designed to make sure u can handle the remaining 15 percent of strange office consults that pop up now and then.
When u finish it, u feel accomplished.

M.med ran for 30 to 40 years and there's like 600 plus of them. Gdfm run for 18 years already got 1200 plus Liao.

U go overseas no such thing as diploma fp one.
