Pay clinical assistant, cost of drugs, utilities, rent, licensing, maintenance of infrastructure.
Not sure how much is left after deducting everything.

Don't forget to factor in your competitors.

So how much do GPs who run their own clinic take home?

Thats why foreign doctors who live and work in the safety of Singapore should be forced to contribute 1-5% of their pay to a National Service-in-lieu Fund to benefit under-privileged Singaporeans. No more I-save-babies-so-I-dont-need-to-serve-NS excuse to take advantage of Singapore's infrastructure and FT-friendly policies while discriminating against local born medicos.

This would make it a more level playing field for Singaporean males considering they are inherently disadvantaged against.

Haha I think local docs should pay 5% to the FT. Coz local docs go for reservist and make the FT work doubly the hard.

Reservist is like going camping holiday. They can fool their wives and girlfriends but we are not stupid. Haha!

It dependsÖ.
In the past yes, but now the department actually needs to have enough AC vacancies to hire you as an AC.
If you donít get an AC spot, you can choose to remain in the department as a Service Registrar until a spot opens up.

Itís slightly different for Family Medicine.
you become AC only 3 years after FM residency.
And C only after completing another 2 year fellowship + doing quite a bit of extra work on top of clinical duties.
