My clinic come one mopexer after asking for so long 4 months later quit becuase he learn the ropes liao
Resident pipeline also very chiu. Drop out rates 20 to 30 percent
The remainder 40 percent fail exams
Those that pass half straight go private.
100 fam med ressie per batch left 30 behind in ops and that cos thet got bond
Unofficially half will leave once bond up and saved up to open clinic or girls claimed all the maternity or complet family.
Left 10 just nice become your clinic deputy director or director lo
But they direct who I also dunno. Everyone leaving and no core workforce
Maybe become a locum workforce

Future of primary care yo!

Your grouses are not unique to Singapore. The scope of primary care keeps expanding. More and more things are "simple" and the primary care doc should manage. And specialists are saying don't waste their precious time with unnecessary referrals (as if primary care dr's time is not precious).
Wanting drs to see more complicated patients with same finite time and not have any reduction in total number of patients seen.

Meanwhile what's the consult fee like?

There seems to be a correlation between consult fees for GPs and the cost of a men's hair cut in various countries.

This is how societies now value primary care physician consults. Might be better off being a barber.

The shophouse GP clinics in my area (Bukit Timah) seem to be doing well though. Fees are for sure way higher than the quick cuts at Beauty World.

And yet many students apply for a spot in NUS YLLSOM every year. All with lofty ambitions of wanting to be a rich surgeon. Only to find out later that their odds are very slim. Even worse, some who canít get into YLLSOM waste their time on a science degree to try their luck for Duke. Perhaps the worst of the lot are the ones who shell out over half a million dollars on an overseas med education!

Ok? And what about the rent? The biggest earners are the ones operating in mature HdB estates. Look at their patient volume. All filled to the brim. Just take a walk at Ang Mo Kio, Toa Payoh
