its very difficult for someone who has worked in the same specialty to be a GP, bar general medicine. General Medicine would complement GP work. even general surgical residents would have difficulty working as a GP.

How many doctors can really work as an estate agent or insurance agent? Medicine takes away creativity.

but anyways, should not have difficutly geting an AC job after residency

No wonder not many doctors become successful entrepreneurs and researchers.

However, doctors should possess love of humanity , not love of money and fame.

You dont understand the regulatory bodies for the profession of medicine.

It is a dictatorship. Sucks out all the creativity and think out of box stuff. You simply do not do that as a dr. You follow guidelines. Protocol. You want to do something different you will be suspended. Hence no doctor ever tries to think out of the box new ways to treat and help patients. All standardized. Monkey see monkey do. Watch one do one teach one.

What love of humanity? Love following guidelines treat every patient the same.

It is the pinnacle of conformity. Doctors dont make more money by being better. They make more money for working more. Ie more patients.

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.
So doctors in scrubs usually represent that they are on call? And if they are in normal office attire they are not? Just curious with how the hospital attire works as I always thought it was up to the doctors themselves to decide on what they wanted to wear. How rare is it that SSRs, ACs and Cs have to be on call and in what departments?

Itís up to the department / hospital policy.
SSR AC C all have to be on call. But the type of call varies from department to department.
Some departments require a Ďstay iní call or itís equivalent (like ED night shift, you canít escape it even when you are senior), some allow a Ďstay outí call (I.e. rush back to hospital when **** hits the fan and registrar cannot manage)

Can I ask are people working in private sector (either private gps/specialists) subjected to regular RRT, the cessation of elective cases (for surgeons) and the cross institution movement restrictions that doctors in public sector are subjected to?
