U mean there is inter cluster pay variability?
I assumed all clusters in the same
How come the cluster that ends at 430 has no walk in patients

I feel sad for Singapore GPs.

Looks like salaries have increased but does not keep up with inflation

You people talk of 200k a year as "good"?

Even argue that it isnt really 200k. But 180 or 190k?

And then the one saying 14k a month doing pap and health screening
Reviewing results in evenings mon to fri 9 to 5 is good too?

Its pathetic.

Consider how much a car costs in singapore. Also a home.
Not even a house. A condo apartment

Even at 400k a year how many years you need to work to pay off a condo?

I know some drs who left Singapore. 9 to 5 is standard. No weekends and ph is standard
Easily earn 250k for working 2.5 days a week.
Price of a Toyota RAV4 is about 40 to 50k. A house is 500 to 600k.

Sad for you guys.

I know that in private, it's more about what you can do (i.e performance) rather than qualifications itself.

I was wondering, even if one doesn't pass mmed, will the knowledge that one gain from preparing from it be useful or beneficial in gp land? especially with this whole healthier sg initiative. (Starting with htn/hld/dm, but I believe there are probably plans to spread to other chronic disease in the cdmp in the future).

Don't know man.. this is coming from myself, a very disillusioned R3 who feels that he will never pass mmed (especially after attending the monthly clinical practice sessions by my faculty), and trying desperately to convince myself that I am doing the right thing in life...

Performance indeed. More showmanship
People skills
Know how to assess what the patient wants
Unspoken requests met
Earning trust
Making patient feel acknowledged and listened to.
Investment of time and hard work at beginning to build
Relationships and trust. Later then visits get faster and easier
And some of the medication prescribed is never given same way
As in OPS or taught at academic courses
More customer service and giving them what they want rather than
What is "CPG recommendation"
In fact have to "unlearn" what you were taught to say and do to
Pass exam.
You will either find pte enlightening or you might be even more
Disillusioned
Simple question for you. You like following CPG and doing what is
The standard of practice?
Or do you like wayang and bs have patient love you like cult figure

more than enough.

Don't buy too much into the healthier SG thing. Its KPI based and they are not gonna find it financially rewarding managing the poorly controlled DM on 4 OAH , 3 anti hypertensives , overweight and smoking to earn a $25 consult fee. Probably metformin / glipizide cannot control refer to poly liao.
See urti sell MC , pseudo meds like leftose with a course of standby augmentin nets u more money.

normal to feel u cannot pass at R3 level. Trust me , R4 time u will suddenly improve a lot one.

what's up with the GPs in this thread? Find it amusing that they keep assuming that residents / m.medders cannot survive in the real world. No need to keep harping like a broken record man. Macham like the buay tak chek kids keep telling everyone they are street smart and will make it big in the real world while the booksmart kid not flexible in life and will just farm their 4K salary after university degree.
