Dont joke. the GDFM and MMED are robust exams.
If u want to compare with residents that is another story.
I can attest some of our indian colleagues are the most hardworking people I know. Unlike the failures who can't study.

I think need to be humble also that GDFM and MMED are not internationally recognized exams. Not like you have these you recognized as equivalent specialist in Australia, USA, UK or EU.

Yes of course we talking about local setting. But doctors with GDFM have shown the quality to practice.

no doubt our foreign colleagues with international qualifications are just as well qualified.
Maybe we should hire more

The np in my clinic cannot make it one lei.
One simple chronic case they write pages and pages because they scared and need documentation for protection.
One morning hardly can see 10 case. Anything outside still need to ask senior doctor in queue and it could things as simple as a keratokantoma.

They can't tank a chronic queue.
And salary not cheap hor. Most of them anc level liao , salary is mo level.
I rather have a mo rather than a np.

They are there simply because some genius make the mistake of calling nurse a low skill workforce
Now got to map out higher level of work for them.
Much like duxton was built becuase lky and family was caught buying condo on discount.

Imho nurse do what nurses have to do. Sub speciality will be like wound care, ICU nursing, surgical assistant etc. No need train them to become mini doctors...becuase not here not there.
Pay them well. No one cares what u call them.
Agreed no point to hire the APN or NCS in polyclinic. They earn Rp salary but cannot clear queue. I agree that hiring a MOPEX or RP is better. They cannot handle own q , need to discuss every case and transfer out at least 50% of their cases as they cant handle the " by the way... " questions and add to my acute cases q. It is not efficient at all. No amount of training will do

So low standard?

Then it is time for MOH to send nurses to train to be proper nurse practitioners. Most NPs in other countries are very experienced nurses who work in ICU and ER. Are lecturers in Nursing school. Level of knowledge and competence is comparable to a Family Physician.
But they are paid less than FPs.

This will save MOH money in the long run.

No need have so many FPs. Have a handful to be Clinician/Managers. The bulk of the work can be done by NPs at lower salaries. I am referring to OPS.
