Seen this $15K bouncing around like a given. Go where to locum?

For talented individuals medicine is not a lucrative career

But for average individuals like those cannot qualify local med sch, go tasmania etc
Medicine is very lucrative. Coz their intellect wont allow them to perform well in other career so their opportunity cost is small


Only for a small subset of 20% local med sch or oxbridge, they could reach higher potential in other careers

30% would have done equally well in other careers

Most local med sch 50% still benefit from the renumeration of medical education

Tldr if u damn talented, dont join med
If you average, can consider
If you lousy, tasmania is a good choice

U cannot get into med school is it?
Nothing to do but whole day come here and spout Ur imaginery tech or banking or law pay of 500k
It's ok if you don't get into medicine.
You can contribute to society in other ways
Eg keep the road clean.
No need come here and bash our salary.
It's ok, we understand. Really. And you should move on.
You scolding the wrong poster.
I'm the one usually talk about "imaginERY" tech or banking or law pay of 500k.
Actually medicine also got 500k pay. Specialize go private. GP also possible but must do niche work.

Might as well slog it out as an MO for 3-4 years and do aesthetics after you get full reg.

I am now earning around $18000/month base + $3000-$40000 commission every month in a top aesthetics chain. Have only around 4 years of aesthetics experience.
hmm fair enough but radiology is only 5 years, psych would have been 7 or 8 years and need ST3/4 re-application. I would be consultant by the time trying to slog it out and get full reg as MO. how much is your indemnity?

why would they do that just to be RP in sg, UK GP CCT can go Canada or Aussie..

Lol Tasmania is already delisted. In all honesty, if you really have average grades. Can consider Adelaide.. even BBB can enter.
