while i no action only talk, it is therapeutic to me.

Does anyone know if it is possible to complete diploma in occupational med while still employed by moh? I understand the final assessment requires a case report of a workplace, not sure how to fulfill that if still under moh?

Beri hard

Occupational diploma is for dfd
U want to have dfd in coz u Harbour thoughts of running away
So expecting to be disloyal yet want a good assessment is impossible

However I highly encourage u to join prevent med residency and specialize in occupational health

Aussie full-time GP (40 hours a week) is A$300-500k++ per year hence why UK GPs quitting NHS and migrating en masse down under, but some difficulty getting into training program for IMGs. More income if you do procedures (allowed in Aussie but not in SG). There is a big facebook group for UK GPs looking to work in Australia, but not the other way around.

Psychiatry easier to get into than GP training in Aussie for IMGs and similarly paid. Paeds is lowest paid specialty in Aussie, easiest to get in but most of their trainees really enjoy treating kids.
