Need some to leave lah. All stay means even worse for those who stay.

Best advice is to leave and go be property agent. Learn to trade stocks. Then locum a bit during beginning to make ends meet. When see success as prop agent or stocks booming then can quit medicine altogether.
FP easy. work in CH. Just anyhow round. Any problem, jusr refer to ED or ask Gen Med take over. Life is good. Somtimes can maybe arrange with friend. No need come to work. haha

Silly question, this thread seems to be all about people wanting to leave for private. Was wondering if there are actually doctors who have left for private but want to come back to public? This is for both FM/gps as well as specialist (e.g cardio/gs etc)

Given the number of junior doctors that have resigned lately, is there a possibility that chain group could potentially run out of jobs?

There’s always demand everywhere.
Chains want to expand.
People want to open their own clinics and hire.
Businessmen want to open clinics and hire minion GPs.

gp salary will just get lower lor.
hire a gp at 15k maybe profit 5k nia. not worth effort.
reduce to 10k salary, 10k profit ok la. plus more u open more syngergy. can bulk buy med, gloves , share clinic assistant, software.
make it big enough maybe someone even buy u out
later become minster also can.
oh yes, can donate money to have a lecture hall in nus named after your mother somemore.
tan mei li lecture hall, tan dua lui book prize. tan gu gu professorship

Current mopex who plan to leave once bond is up next year. Was wondering other than gdfm (which I completed), is there any other courses that I should take to help with working as gp outside? I am thinking in terms of both medical (e.g diploma occupational med, diploma derm) and non medical (e.g coding courses given the shift towards telemed, excel courses etc)- also thinking where I should use my skills future credits 😂

Just wondering coz I was searching through one of the gp chains (Dr anywhere), they actually mentioned in their job application (for a hybrid Dr role) page that "doctors who have experience in tech startup" would be preferred.

So just wondering what other skills other than clinical knowledge and communication skills are employer looking for nowadays?

If sell more expensive properties even better can go up to 5%. 5m property 5% comm you get $250k just from that one property. You still want to be dr? Dont waste your time and talent.
This is the only sage advice given how the dominant political party has focused on ever increasing property prices to drive up sinkies paper networth.

I Know for a fact that for specialist, they will ask how many patients you can bring in/poach over from the public sector?
Not sure if that applies for gp?
I would think that for Chain gp grps, if you can work longer hours/nights (i.e no family commitment), it will be better?

Can I ask if working in polyclinic or any public institution is really a safe haven or iron rice bowl?
I understand from my seniors that they are usually offered 2-3 year contract when they sign on with ops (for fm) or hospital (for AC)
Is there a possibility that they can choose not to renew your contract subsequently or choose to alter the terms (e.g lower pay etc)
