I personally want to just go gp land in the long term eventually. Part of me is telling me to just complete residency, gain the ops experience and hopefully mmed (if I miraculously pass which I doubt since I am planning to leave immediately after residency and not join the prep course crap), other part of me is to tell me to leave now (esp given the locum rates at CTF etc, which will probably not be around when I finish residency next year)

I am also struggling with my other requirements like qip, 20 cases etc (they actually reduce from 40 to 20 &#128514
I am personally undecided..was wondering if anyone can give any advice?
you shld still be able to join the prep course as a private candidate after residency. fyi the real prep for MMed is during the PREP course.
salaried GPs will always be in demand in the near future. standard 12-15k salary as always.
if you're talking about high locum rates to hit 30k / month then of course that is no guarantee.

ask yourself what you want to do in the long run.
don't just switch purely for short term financial gain

Just watched a YT video by CNA showing a pediatrician living in a good class bungalow. Is this really how the older generation of doctors lived?

actually even now paeds shop work really hard and earn reasonable profit.

U set up a paeds shop in a good neighborhood, per consult charge $120
Coz ppl care abt their young children and infant. But heck care adult and old parents

So can get good volume * good basal rate
Plus meds per consult is about 200bucks.

U just need to see 30 patients per day.
So work about 250 days out of 365 days

So 200*30*250=1,500,000

One year turn over 1.5mil with 800k income is doable.

TLDR paeds residency is worth it.

Bro u R right.

Yes u can open ten Bak Chor mee stall.
Bak Chor mee stall is like fam med.
Cheap stuff.
Need to see 1000 tpa to break even.
If u clinic chain owner yes, u can own ten gp clinic.
Then u earn as much as one high end restaurant

Paeds is specialist. High end restaurant stuff.
One Michelin star chef serve limited number of ppl.
While 30 consults per day perfectly reasonable.

There is a a reason why paeds so hard to get in.
TLDR just Chiong for plastics ortho ent eye Derm paeds if u keen for money
