Yup.
Too many doctors.
Too few positions.

My friend is a lawyer dating a doctor doing his residency now. They meet once a week because hes too busy with work / doing calls / studying exams / dunno what. Everytime they have an issue, he seems to like to play the Im very busy with work card. Her life basically revolves around his schedule / off days after calls. If you dont mind this kind of life trajectory then ok lor.

Rubbish. Private practice can do.
Why? Because one fine day, there's gonna be a speciality call family medicine and those with fellowship will be family medicine specialists . You know singaporeans la, got specialist behind, faith goes up. U can charge more.
By tat time u want do fellowship, u wait Liao.

Sleep with your boss.

Pls la, u entered a speciality with 100 spots a year and u expect a job gaurantee. One polyclinic 20 to 25 doctor nia. Use Ur little finger nail neuron power think also know what that means.

Blame yourself. There's a few reservior in sg with secluded spots where your body will not be discovered.
