Can I ask, in general is the starting pay for RP/FP (mmed) the same for everyone irregardless of their pgy years.
I am a FM r3, who recently attended a career talk from ops. They were sharing basically if we pass mmed, we will go down the FP-AC track and if we fail, we will go down the RP track until we pass.

There were many questions regarding pay and benefits but the HR response was the standard "it depends".
I always thought the starting pay for RPs and FPs should be the same since we are joining a new institution (i.e from mohh to ops) Subsequent pay progression depends on performance of course.

I.e a pgy 5 (who just pass mmed) should have exactly the same starting salary, leave benefits etc as a pgy 8 who pass mmed in the same year, if they are offered a FP role post mmed

Some of the large chain groups (rmg, parkway shenton do pay additional allowance for mmed)
This is from few of my seniors who passed mmed last year and joined them. But of course not all gp groups recognize it.

Do you know if these groups (or any gp groups) provide sponsorship for mmed? (Noted that this will probably come with a bond)

Same pay la.
Abo all the old gdfm rp in ops why never go take m.med.

Your question a bit brainless lei.
So a pgy 15 surgeon who just exited should be paid more than a super zai surgeon who just exited?
