Yes. Itís stated in the contract.

Should I consider applying to polyclinic as FP(GDFM) , at least i'll have materinity coverage, no nights and more leaves and mc quoto.

However, I do not want a pay decrease, Can anyone advise me on the base pay please and annual salary. I know base pay may be lower ~ 8k + $500 ( for GDFM ) = $8500 per month.

But i heard bonuses are good and Fp have additional bonuses-> anyone can shed some light on these please. I dont personally know people in polyclinic so I have no one to really ask per say and abit hard to ask HR
12k/month sounds like RMG.
Overall pay might be slightly lower. $8500 base pay. about 15-17 months total pay package per annum.

I think is acceptable.

Coz u see because of singapore terrible labour policies coz our high ses female doc not to be able to give birth.

Sg birth rate is low. She is high ses. Next time her son or daughter also become gd docs

I feel ops shld take.
And give her maternity and mc.
Coz that is what govt sector abt, supporting govt policy


Me gonna write in to govt
Next time all ops must have

A x % of females of child bearing age.
And y % must take z number of days or childcare, maternity, fcl leave

This will be the ops kpi in addition to ur teamlet kpi

U dont want SEA doc or indie doc , yet u dont let ops female doc take maternity leave, what shortsightness

1. Apart from working towards pathology and radiology, what other career options are there for a person about to complete HOship and not really keen on dealing with patients?

2. What is the scene for aesthetic medicine like? I heard that just with MBBS alone, and full registration, you can go take some COC in botox and join some aesthetics clinic? I heard that the pay via this path is quite good. But it sounds too good to be true. What's the catch?

Can do admin. But medical admin sucks more.
Dealing with patients is hard. Dealing with doctors even harder


Aesthetics need a bit of baseline skills.
No catch but once again must pander to patients demand
And high EQ

Bottom line to make money in medical or non medical line Ur job is to make ppl happy to earn

Why u so harsh hahaha

For the juniors,

Aesthetics is really like insurance agent.

The sky is ur limit.
If u can convince ur patient for more treatment and do it well, you will be well rewarded.

Sweet talk v impt

Thank you for your response! Appreciate it. Do you know where I can find out more about 'medical admin' role? I have done Google searches but couldn't find any official pages on it. I assume there's no residency for it, and it's just something that you can do temporarily as part of the MOPEX.

Hahaha thank you for responding. Just to clarify: dealing with patients isn't a dealbreaker for me. I would just prefer to minimise contact hours with them.

Yeah, I can imagine that aesthetic medicine will be quite competitive. I suppose the isolated figure (salary that his friend was earning within aesthetic medicine straight after HOship) that a doctor told me about doesn't paint a complete picture, and that his friend was/is probably an exceptional performer with good connections.
