Hi, would like some career advice. I am currently a pgy3, mopexing. I am just wondering if my long term plan is to be a private gp (probably work for a chain) is there any value to do residency? I have no plans to break bond, so essentially have around 3 years bond left. I was thinking my options are
A) do residency which is around 3 years, and will almost end when my bond end. (That is assuming I get in this round of course)
B) try and get mopex in ops, (can be difficult) with the aim to sign on as RP for 2-3 years (i.e the remainder of my bond). I will then leave once my bond finish. I am currently in Ed now, quite a few people in similar situation have signed on as RP in Ed, with the aim for leaving to private once their bond end. I am not sure if polyclinic offer a similar scheme. (I.e offer RP contracts for pgy 3-4 to finish off their bond)

I know post grad fm qualifications doesn't really matter in the private sector, but I was just thinking which will provide a better learning/preparation experience if my long term aim is to be private gp? (3 years in residency or 2-3 years mopex in mixture of Ed and ops)

Thanks

The term quiet quitter has came on quite a bit recently in the social media platforms. Basically quiet quitters are people who only do exactly what is required of them, nothing more, nothing less, with no ambition, and no desire to achieve good Performance grading (for their appraisal etc).

I believe that this group of people has always been around, just that more people are talking Abt it now. I personally feel that on reflection, I probably belong to the group of quiet quitter. Just curious, if one is a quiet quitter, would becoming a locum be better option, since most people in public (esp senior staff) are often asked to do many other non clinical duties (e.g admin, teaching, research etc)

Quit your head la
People quit is to do other things in life. Change career. Become r. Tik Tokker.
Not "quit" and become locum which is not quit la. You still the same slave.

a. only 3 year residency is fam med. You miss out the current cycle, so u can apply next year 2023 to enter in 2024. Your bond finish in 2025. Btw its 3 applicant for each fam med spot now, so its competitive. Do the maths yourself

b. Ops posting v hard to get. Not that OPS dun want mopex but MOHH priorities manpower to hospital and NCID in view of covid situation. And u need 1 year mopex experience before polyclinic offer u RP . Calculate your chances ba.

c. who say FM qualification dont matter? At least do a GDFM la to get an idea what you are looking at, ah bo everything you fall back to MBBS standard and that is frankly not enough.

d. Use the next 3 years to get good experience la. A&E scope can be good experience but i think 6 months more than enuff to cover u for general practice liao. Can try to get children emergency to be comfortable with kids, posting is not that hard to get.
next do other posting that gives u some chronic disease exposure ( best is OPS posting) like FMCC , community hospital postings.

e. you have to look at career longevity as well. You not even 30 years old and got another 30 years to work. GP land is not that promised land of good money and chill work. its evening work and weekend work and productivity based, ie you have to see patients and more patients. Sometimes work a bit harder when u are young to become a specialist , when u are older, life is really much better.
