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.

1) wait until the department has a position by working (and getting paid) as a senior service registrar.
2) find another hospital who has AC vacancy to hire you
3) quit and be a GP / housing agent / insurance agent etc

Is there not a need to compete with IMG doctors fresh out of residency abroad?

How much does a senior service registrar earn?

If they are born and bred Singaporeans whose parents and grandparents have contributed to the Singapore we have today, then of course they should be allowed to compete for AC positions just as YLL grads do.

Problem is the FT doctors with no skin in the game, no contribution to Singapore's defence and NS, who leech off Singapore's safe and politically stable work environment and deprive equally or more competent Singaporeans of their career progression.

can you apply for residency while serving the remainder of your NS? to go further, if I have e.g. 1.6 years of NS left, am I only allowed to apply for residency when I have less than a year left?

You can apply. But whether the residency programme chooses to take you is another thing.
You can discuss frankly with the programme director / faculty to see if they are willing to keep the spot for you while you are away at NS.
Some are willing to keep for you. Some may not. Best to have a frank and upfront discussion

Prolly somewhere between a Reg and AC.
If you have already dedicated 5-6 years of your life to that specialty, no harm just waiting a little more with slightly less pay.
