I have personally enquired with a private chain group, they are offering a monthly salary of 15.3k for a 52 hr/week contract, need to work night shift (up to 10-11pm), and weekends, however no calls obviously. They are willing to offer me this pay even before I take my mmed exam. (Which will be end of next year)

I have not heard anything about the pay that ops will offer me after I complete my residency in June next year. (And whether there will be a pay increment if I do pass my mmed)- I guess we probably will get more details from my faculty closer to the end of the year.

I find the offer from the chain group very attractive (esp given that I am drawing mo pay now). However, would like to hear from some of the seniors
- would ops ever give a pay of 15k even if I complete mmed or even fellowship in 3-4 years time?
- is there anything else I should consider when accepting such offers? (Personally I was quite shocked to be offered such a high pay by the chain group- just checking if I am missing a trick or something?)

I will still complete my residency till June next year, just wanting to explore my options after.
I am happy to pay for my own mmed exam and prep course if needed. (I.e complete residency then take mmed as private candidate)
I forgot to add
Some groups calculate the employer CPF contribution of $1020 into your monthly pay as well.
So do check carefully what they mean by $15k.
It could be $14k take home plus $1020 employee CPF contribution.

Thatís what they pay you to do anyway.

Thatís why I said think about the longer term horizon of 10-20 years.
In clinic chains you are pretty much doing the same thing for 10-20 years unless you open up your own clinic chain.
Bigger groups may give you some options for promotion like regional lead / clinic head whatsoever which will mean you are in charge of the clinics/ several clinics in the region.
So you can also do some admin, chasing for locums, etc if thatís your cup of tea.
I beg to differ lei.
In the long term in private u have the time to mould your clinical practice.
U can start to collect depressed and anxious patient and earn a good living being a mini psychiatrist.
Other than aesthetics , chronic pain management, men's health , women's health ( eg menopause hrt replacement ) are all possible cliche area to go into. Bread and butter gp work only got so much to go around la, chronic disease management is big, but u can never out compete polyclinic in terms of cost
eventually u at the mercy of TPA in race to bottom line.
In public setting Ur clinical boundaries extend as far as wat ministry allows only. In that sense it's way boring. Admin is eeee. Polyclinic head always v stress one.

Be RP for what. Only bad doctors with low experience or skills become RP right?
