Doctors trained and specialist-certified in approved centres in European Countries (listed in the European Directive 93/16/EEC) should have a basic degree from a recognised medical school in the Second Schedule of the current Medical Registration Act Singapore (MRA Second Schedule) and have completed the entire specialist training in a university training hospital(s) of a recognised medical school in the MRA Second Schedule. Possess at least two years of specialist working experience in the European country where his specialty is recognised under the Directive 93/16/EEC, SwissĖEU/EFTA Agreement or EEA Agreement is a further requirement. Those with less than two years specialist working experience will be assessed by the SAB and conditions may be further imposed.

Hey guys! Informative thread once you get past the troll comments. Iím an overseas grad currently PGY3 working in Australia, and am pretty keen on pursuing Anaesthetics/ICU. It is true that in general specialist training in Australia does require the trainee to have Aussie PR. There are exceptions, but the norm is training positions go to PR holders as priority. Neither is it difficult to secure internship positions in Australia as a Singaporean! Just takes some patience and willingness to explore pathways eg rural or private hospital internships. All very doable.

I was wondering how difficult getting into anaesthetics residency is in Sg. My understanding is that Iíd probably have to do multiple MOPEX rounds and do exams even before Iíll stand a chance of getting in. Tough indeed! And if anyone can advise - ICU is a sub speciality isnít it? Have ti complete Resp/A&E/Anaesthetics first?

Excuse my ignorance! Thanks loads and happy cny!

mostly correct.
easier to get into anathesia in aus though

sg wise exam v hard to pass. singhealth largest intake , resident flogged v hard and between service and learning, often service take precedence and many fail the exams.
nuh smallest intake but caseload lower might not get enuff practical experience.
singhealth likes people who pass the part 1 already.

Desmond Wai says that only 20-30% get residency now. Is this true or fearmongering?

He is not exactly wrong.

In practice we offer jobs for 25% of cohort.


For every 100 med sch grad, we take about 40 of cohort
5 will drop out, 35 will pass out.
We then offer job for top 25 out of the 35.
In practice immediate offer is 25% of cohort.

We let the 10 fight it out for job. A few years of service regs for them.
I cannot emphasise to me how impt their contributions are.

The trick for program to take sufficient excess trainees.
this will ensure good supply of registars and service registrars.
But dangle a reasonable chance of job opportunities to keep them motivated.
