Why put down our FM colleagues? Surely they play an important role
In primary prevention in our community

FM is not a specialty. Fake news spotted.

I think the problem with FM is that they are not a specialty.
Only fcfps are the real specialist.

I suggest downgrade the license of all mcfps, mmed , gdfm to provisional registration.

Only when they get fcfps then they have truly exited and can see patients independently.

So each gp clinic or polyclinic must have a fcpfs as overall signer.
All new cases must clear with fcpfs.
Every 3 visit the gp or fp (mmed gdfm mcfps) must clear and fcpfs must electronically sign it.

Thats why MOHH is furiously trying to pump up their FM numbers even at the expense of poorly trained so-called mmeds. Even GDFM is way better than mmed because it save time for the doctor to see real patients and also its just less pretentious than their internationally unrecognized FM residency.

Heck, even our neighbours up north FM programme is more worldly renowned than our locally produced FM residency.
u definitely a residency reject. so bitter.
ahaha..gdfm better than m.med.
sure.

Be realistic, you have no ownership of patients in Polyclinic.
You have to deal with complaints, impatient patients, care is substandard as you only have 5-10 ins per patient. You do not get to know the patient and their families and truly be a family Dr.

GPs are really our true blue family drs. GDFM is sufficient.
I did MMED and i still left for private, got thrown admin, workgroups, audits in polyclinic. Who say can reject arrow, my place only get arrowed, cannot reject. Yes, I work lesser hrs for same pay in poly but im not happy, I dont get the true satisfaction and its so damn stressful in polyclinic -> any small compliant boss comes knocking on your door : " doctor lacks empathy bla bla , how to show empathy in 5 mins consult , you tell me" So many walk in patients . It was demoralising to say the least in polyclinic.

Now in GP land, i get the small pleasures in life. Yes, its busy but my patients and me have a true connect. My regulars bring me XMAS and NY gifts, breakfast - im not looking or greedy for these, but it shows the personal connect i have with my patients now. I do what im comfortable with. Patient wanna compliant also cannot. I am the boss, hello ..

Actually the local fcfps not even recognised by other FM colleges in other countries, you get fcfps then later want to work in England or Australia or America also cannot because no other countries recognise the fcfps as specialist qualification. Other Singapore specialist colleges are more recognised than this fake FM specialty which IMHO was mostly created to make poly drs feel better about themselves lol.
