Doctors are feeling poor. Actually, doctor not very valuble. Better be lawyer. Doctor consultation 50 dollars
U start off scientific/medical affairs manager.
Slowly promote to senior scientific/medical affairs manager
Then assistant regional director/country head
Regional director

Handle regulatory issues.
Must be able to talk and sell, present yourself well.

Starting pay wont be high, maybe a 6-8k per mth but if you tiong for very long. The top positions can be a third to half a mil easily.

And good training provided

U take up another law degree be medical claims lawyer.

You can do admin. You can do pharmaceuticals. You can work for drug companies.

Basically u must work hard.

Other fields get to where they are by working hard. If you dont commit 18hr per day u cannot expect big money.

The problem is a lot of docs self entitled
Self entitled in what sense?They also study and work hard to be consultant and senior leh

i think better not be doctors. to all the doctors out there, i think just sour grapes. No more elite of society, so complaining here. who ask u all just want to be good at books. too bad lor. haha. so many doctors to serve us rich people and stuck in this career. no more regrets.

aesthetics is lucrative yes. but will you be happy pandering to all the tai tai requests?
are you ok sleeping at night knowing that you studied so many years of med sch, just to use your knowledge to fire some laser machines at rich ladies who just want to look better?

if you want to compare salary, just go into IT / finance / private equity straight
money there is even better. half a million base + bonuses.
Inflation will just eat the salary away. give it a few years, doctors salary will just be average. nothing to be impressed about.

i think the consultant all dont deserve their pay leh. they just have a piece of paper. i think local sinkies should just give way for doctors from other country to come in. cheaper and better.

Dont be like that lah.

As doctors we must internalise PCOS ideals
Poverty
Chastity
Obedience
Service/stocism

These are core qualities
Medical school didnt select us well, so cause today scenario
