Just a general word of advice for those slogging it out in residencies, itís definitely worth it at the end.

The salary ceiling for a specialist/surgeon is higher than that of a GP.

Thereís no income/ career progression for a GP, other than working more hours (as a locum) or opening your own clinic (which is increasingly harder these days due to the competition).

Thatís the reason why you see many GPs doing aesthetics because thatís the only way they can gamble for a higher salary down the road. Again not guaranteed, many did their COCs only to find that aesthetics is too competitive for them. They have no choice but to go back to being a GP after that.

Even as a non-surgical specialist, your income growth can still be substantial if you are good and have patient volume.

I have seen friends clearing over $700k/year in specialities like Pediatrics, Renal Medicine in the private sector. Definitely possible if you are wiling to work hard and if thereís a huge demand for your services.

In general, how long does a newly graduated specialist take to build his reputation so that he can get the load in the private sector? Does it differ for proceduralist Vs non proceduralist?

Think is GP once they finish their training/bond, can go out almost immediately. I reckon it's harder to go out as a specialist immediately? (Maybe need 5-6 years to build your reputation 1st?)

Are you also indirectly hinting that FM residents should just quit since the path for them is crap anyway?

It depends on the speciality. For acute internal med specialities like cardio resp renal oncology GI, it typically involves at least 3 years of experience as a consultant. To gain admission rights when you practise in the private sector

Surgeons typically have to spend many years honing their skills before they can go private, quite common to spend 5/6 years as a consultant in public

Iím in pysch and most of my seniors leave for private practice after only 2-3 years after specialist accreditation.
