No? Becuase there is more to work than money, esp if u earning in the 200k range
Firstly pay in public rise, slowly but surely.
It has other fringe benefits like nearly 30 days of leave
No nights or evening
Sponsored training
Colleagues
Professional identity and esteem.
Education and mentorship if u keen
Paternity /paternity benefits


It's a supply and demand outside.
Barrier of entry is super low.
Aesthetic is not the magical place to work.
It's tough work and super competitive becuase anyone can do a coc
Buy a laser , attend a weekend demo and start offering liao.
U go see turnover of aesthetic clinic
New one pop up every 1 to 2 years while other died after a while.
5k can buy a second hand machine
30k got swanky clinic for u to take over.

Outside GP rumeration also just spike up this 1 to 2 years.
Is it sustainable for chains to offer such good rates no one knows.
Afte a while, all this hot startup like DA with dry out venture funds start to close shop
I dunno what will happen to all this young bond breakers.
Maybe a doomsday scenario
Maybe not.

In the meantime the public service doctor sheltered from all this.

In investing u decide u want buy steady blue chips and Huat like warren buffet way of slow and steady
Or u want go crypto way. Jump into the hot fav with hot money..and then hope u cash out before it all come crashing down

Agree with that. Locum with mbbs can hit even higher nowadays. My max with gdfm was also S$15k as a locum for one mth only. Rates were lower than and I don't have so much stamina to locum long hrs.

People just need to find a place that they are happy working in and sustainable in the long run la. That's the beauty of FM, one discipline, many settings

Be it aesthetic, HS, gp land, ops, comm hosp, NH, or even occupation med/dwd work.

Really not right and wrong. And nobody say mmed means you must work in certain place.
I have friends with mmed just doing HS work coz got bored with the public system. Also have friends with just gdfm (couldn't pass mmed) but chose to stay in ops, coz she like chronic disease management.

Can also call it neither here nor there.
Besides Aesthetics all the ones you listed is general med practice in different venues. Not much of a specialty by skill.
Unlike in other countries where the FM do sub specialize into proper fields of need and demand.
Eg obstetrics. Chronic pain. Palliative. Addictions. Mental health. Anesthesia. Surgical assist. Emergency Med. Dermatology. Geriatrics.
