THE PAYRAISE IS NOT MEANT FOR YOU.
Hospital ppl enjoy your second bonus in 2 years.
Sounds about right as OPS does not work as hard as other doctors in the hospital.

Yup.
OPS / primary care is very low value work.
Standard of care is similar to M5 student or worse.

Couldn't agree more. Low value work = low value compensation. You reap what you sow.

Yes the young fp bonus of 50k over 3years is only for ops. (Even ch don't have) but I guess that's because our basic way lower than an exited specialist lah.

Not complaining as I do appreciate that specialist really add more value to a pt than fp. (coming from an exited FM resident who cleared mmed). I feel that fp role in the healthcare ecosystem is to be the screener/1st point of contact for pts. We help to screen out and manage the simple cases, and hand over the complex ones to the specialist.

For example, oa knee, we counsel on activity modification, physio, quad strengthening exercises, analgesia. Actually Ortho can do exactly what we do plus they can do tkr. Just that they don't have the manpower to do that for all pts, hence they only see the severe cases that require op. But their skill set is way better than us.

We are essentially seeing the simple cases of all specialities so that the specialist themselves don't get overwhelmed with the mundane.

Just my personal opinion of course, and I do expect people to disagree.

Hi seniors, currently 2nd year in Med School. A non insignificant proportion of my batch mates now aspire to be aesthetic Med Drs. However, it seems that one does not need a medical degree to be able to do these procedures that beauticians probably can do as well. Am I missing something here? Why spend 5 years to get a medical degree just to become a glorified beautician?
