I can't seem to find myself doing this for the rest of my life. I have tried to apply for a residency but unfortunately didn't get selected. Because of that I'm kind of depressed and wondering if I can do something else altogether. I know it will waste my 5 years of medical training and all but I believe this is for the best. I was thinking of Australia as an option to further my medical career but I can't bear to leave my family behind as well. I also want to settle down and be capable of feeding my family (especially after the wrong decision of spending half a million studying medicine) . Any senior advice will be very much appreciated. I'm quite stuck and not sure what I should do next. Should I locum? Where to locum? Open a GP clinic? But that needs a lot of capital too.
Are you able to share why you are jaded with the system? Is it because of the long working hours? And 30 hours shift?

Do you know how long more will it takes for you to get your medical license?

What are the usual opening hours for clinics? 830am to 10pm Mon-Sun. Yeah work like that for 30 years. See about 50-60 patients if business is good. Sure to encounter ngiau and nastys. After seeing 547,500 patients 30 years later and making about $20 profit per patient = $10.95m. Can retire. Good deal.

Should have replied earlier... Yes it is. I saw that Singapore regularly cuts unis off their list of recognized medical schools, but mine is still on there.

As I understood it, I need to jump through quite a few bureaucratic hoops, provide documents -- but then I should be able to work as an intern, no?
Or do you mean a license to work as an independent GP in my own practice? I'm not considering that at all, that's not possible in Vienna either.
