I am a mo who is getting increasingly disillusioned and wondering what should I do for the long term?
Quit medicine. You can join insurance line. Or drug companies. Or informatics.

Dont exaggerate. 100k/month is absurd if youre in gov hospital.

The salary ceiling is 300k/year for senior cons and 200k for cons.

Wherever there is reasonable money and respect , people will flock to it. And make it saturated like law.

Hi I am a Singaporean about to finish studying in UK. I know that getting into residency is tough. Can I ask if junior doctors (under mopex/hopex) are treated the same as residents by senior doctors? (Or do residents get more benefits/teaching/opportunities?)

Yea 100k/month sounds a bit too much for any consultant even if you do procedure .
Is 200k/yr before tax? What is tax rate in Singapore .

100k/month ... what a troll ... not even working in the private sector or opening a chain of private clinic can earn you that much as a doctor unless you are really really famous or have a side business .. more like 20k a month

Agree that 100k / month is an exaggeration. However, I have friends who are medical consultants and they are paid like 14-15k per month. I always thought consultant who does procedures earn a significantly higher amount even in government hospital...
