In order to take the exams you need to have you log books filled. Means you gotta do enough postings both medical and surgical. Good luck!

Sg govt wanna open border for economy. Changi airport
Zero case is impossible.
But a few cases still okie.


But when sg case reach 100, they also scared and will do a lockdown variant like from tmr.

So conceptually different, but in practice NZ and Aussie and Sg all practise the same. When cases spike means lockdown or a variant of lockdown.
Whether in aussie or NZ or Singapore. They still contact trace cases.

So once again, sg govt idea of endemic covid in practice no diff from Aussie or nz. But just to pander the Psy to the international businesses

Last time got 500 bucks.

But then MOHH decide that mrcs and MRcp 500 bucks not fair leh.

So they global 500 bucks since 2019. Meaning baby MO ALSO GOT. Even if no qualification

I felt sad coz I passed my intermediate exams then tell me even if I don't pass I still get the 500

Do all hospitals provide scrubs? If so, do we HAVE to wear the scrubs they provide (like mandatory uniform) or can we wear our own attire (like own scrubs with own names on it etc.) Heard OT scrubs is compulsory to wear hospital scrubs but not sure about clinic/floors/rounds.

Cute question.
All hospitals have scrubs.
OT scrubs for wearing in OT
Regular scrubs when on call.
Depending on the hospital / department policy / your consultantís own personal views, you may or may not get to wear the regular scrubs when you are not on call.
Generally surgical disciplines allow you to wear the regular hospital scrubs daily, although some may not allow you to wear it when running clinics.

If you want to wear your own scrubs, you probably have to be damn good at what you do so others wonít point fingers at you / HOD wonít scold you.
