Why spend 5 years to get a medical degree just to become a glorified beautician?

Because the returns are just much faster to realise compared to the traditional path of medical specialisation. I can speak for my batch of GS, some have resigned and are now practising aesthetic medicine.

It is possible to make quarter of a million within a year of joining an aesthetic chain, and upwards of half a million with 5 years of aesthetic experience. Many of the top performers then strike out on their own. Itís very possible to rake in over a million in a year before the age of 40. Popularity is what it all matters.

I think it is not likely to get 1 million
The competition is strong
If u work for somebody is just 250-300k

Even chin chai do AIM or geri u get specialist badge
Got Minons to do your job in hospital
Run clinic 2 to 3 sessions nia
Got time drink kopi at 10am if no clinic

Guai Gaui 2 years get con
Help with some project another 4 years get SC
Then chillax all the way liao.

Ops u see patient all day.
Everything also step down to primary care
System want healthier sg also primary care
CDM also primary care.
Speciality busy create pathway for primary care to manage
Seem to be doing the bulk of the job but getting paid peanuts
and getting squeeze on all front and no recognition.

What for man
Dun want or cannot get into speciality dun go do FM la
Straight go gp land and see urti, msk , eczema
Simpler and make more money
Completely agree. FM and MMed was a waste of time.
System is crap. Just get out, have the autonomy to treat patients properly and earn decent money. Either that or specialise.
Donít waste time doing MMed and working in OPS / primary care. Itís a total hellhole with no satisfaction.

Sounds about right.

Also, public not happy wait so long to see lokun. Got to camp 10pm every night to book appointment and might not get. So now polyclinic need to do calls from 6pm to 10pm daily to clear backlog.

Actually they should consider expanding opening hours
Primary care should not close at 5pm.

Opening longer hours allows people to see their dr
Without having to take time off fron work.
Go after work.
This will take sone pressure off A&E too.
MOH should order OPS to open till 10pm.
