What are the differences between single-accredited IM, advanced IM, and now the new Hospital Clinician Scheme (with RPs being phased out)? Other than the former 2 being SAB accredited and having undergone formal residency training. HCS seems like the US hospitalist system but without the IM board certification. Why not consolidate all primary care programs into either an IM or FM residency like other countries?

Single accredited I'm = advanced I'm

May or may not have jobs

Coz consultant level jobs are not a lot

Hospital clinician scheme is at mid level.

But not at consultant level

But hospital clinician got job

Im must not be consolidated

The medicine thinking, the mrcp thinking

Is not something fm can do

Hi guys, HO here who has just started out! After my 5th call I look down the road and realise I don't think I can do this for the rest of my life. I used to have dreams of becoming a cardiologist but looking at the road ahead and the saikang a GM junior MO has to do before fighting for senior residency I don't think it may be worth it anymore. Wanted to ask about what is the best way to plan MOPEX such that I can avoid calls and perhaps have more time for other things? Am sorry, am struggling to adapt

Very hard. Looks like you are stuck. But you will adapt and get better. I was suicidal for 3 months for my first HO posting. Lost a lot of weight. Sleepless nights. But things got better with 2nd posting. Choose more senang postings.

Does that mean that if you are happy to work for someone and be a minion gp, there is always jobs for you?

Yup. There are plenty of minion GP jobs around.
Regular clinics. Telemedicine. Health screening. Etc etc.
when thereís money to be made, you can be sure minion slave GPs will be needed to run the show and bring in the dough.

Hey. Donít worry. After the 5th call, most aspiring cardiologist oncologist surgeons etc will wanna quit.
Rough it out first for the first year and donít make your plans now when you are feeling down.
Do your best in your postings, it will serve you well to build a good reputation.

If you want a way out, thereís always a way next time but donít burn your bridges too soon.
