reach out to medical protection society (mps). ask them for resources and contacts with the medicolegal defense law firms, and say u wanna to collab. i believe mps covers private practice doctors and senior public healthcare doctors.

Default American Board Certified Emergency Physician

Hi - For an American board certified emergency physician with 15 years experience in the US what is the annual salary in Singapore and are there open positions either at the hospitals // locums? Alternately, are there private concierge groups that provide urgent care that are looking for new providers?
If there are any physicians on the forum who have advice on establishing a career here in Singapore, I would appreciate it.

FYI an expert witness can be anyone who sees similar cases on a daily basis

i already have MMED but i dont see the point staying on in polyclinic as I cannot accept staying back late on a daily basis to clear the large numbers of " walk in patients who expect the world"

I feel its unfair that my work hours is 8-5 , but im staying back till 6-630 with no additional remuneration. At least if i switch to locuming , I can get paid for myhard work on an hourly basis

If anyone knows how to join the locum google groups pls drop the link here thanks.
snarky commends are unwarranted. MMED is not a big deal, I have it and it holds no value nowadays unless u do fellowship in polyclinic. everyone has mmed.

Lastly, in polyclinic i am a slave to the patients. If the patient complians, my boss always supports the patients. whats the point

I have no interest in FCPS. While im young I want to work hard , willing to work long hours and make more money so I can invest more an retire early. My friends earn 20-30 k per month locuming as they are working long hours. This will be possible only while im in my young 30s, not possible once im in my 40s. Not willing to give up the possible higher income for FCFPS
