RP GDFM---> Staff physician or FP-GDFM
-but lesser admin, lesser responsibilities , also rather good pay
-no need do research and QIPs
-say 9kpm+ $500 GDFM stipend per month , there is around 2 month extra FP bonus plus AWS and assume 2 months PB bonus =5 months bonus alrdy = $160 k pm

stay in OPS gets medical benefits, family member healthcare benefits, dental benefits, 26 days AL , also PH offs for sure , no calls, not counting CCL + FCL that people gao gao take always. Most people in OPS max out 14 days MC also
from sign on rp pay to hit 9k basic u need about 5 years lei.
gdfm fp can only do clinical work. day in day out see 50 patient, v sian. M.med can teach resident , can teach medical student. u talk can also a bit louder. can get involved in workgroups, can do research. u can reject arrows one. who say die die have to do qip, audit or research. so many m.medder just farm silently.

m.med go hospital they recog it. gdfm not reco in hospital.
plus gdfm is not a real post graduate degree. it's just a stop gap measure to build the fp pool.

m.med u become like comission officer lo. minimum can get ac in polyclinic. this year FM become speciality liao. gdfm no longer enough soon.

.
Where are you getting the information that fm becoming a speciality? I just passed mmed in the 2021 exam 2 mths back, didn't hear any news about being recognized as a specialist? (Not that I care too much, as I am Essentially choosing the option which pays the best)

There's alot of fake mohh recruitors posing as happy highly paid FM physicians because thats the flavor of the month. I think last month there was even a "FM physician" who said their annual income with mmed is $200-300k pa.
