Default Coming back to work in SG with GP qualifications in UK

Hi there,

Is there a big pay difference (in both private and public sector) of working in Singapore with or without a GP qualification from overseas?

Am currently studying in the UK at the moment and considering whether to finish GP (3years) before coming back to work as I've heard that family medicine (aka GP in the UK) is getting increasingly difficult to get into.

Thanks alot!

In the pte GP market having a MRCGP will make no difference to your salary.

In the public sector having a MRCGP is also not much use since they only recognize MMed Fam Med as specialist family physician qualifications.

So if you have your mind set on coming back to SG might as well come back ASAP.

And asking from perspective of both specialist (i.e those who left after serving at least few years as consultant) and family physician (those who completed mmed/fellowship)
I donít see why not.
There have been cases of returning specialists and FPs.
If you are fully qualified and no bad blood / not burnt your bridges, I donít see why not.

What you mean when you ask "Do they even exist"?
