Obviously the promised land for doctors is to go to private healthcare. But somebody has to man the barricades in PHIs, no? Maybe doctors who are more noble and devoted to serving patients than you lor.

You're setting up strawman arguments.

What is strawman arguement?
Limpeh dunno what talking you.

Anyway precisely there is a private healthcare market that public healthcare market isn't too shabby

True. But unfortunately that only applies to people with qualifications (I e mmed). Those without qualifications outside still better.

You make it sound that the good pay in public healthcare market is only available to the privileged selected few destined for top leadership positions, whereas the private sector willing to reward all those willing to slot ... lol

For a specialist visit that charges $150 for a consultation, how much of that goes towards overhead (clinic rent and staff wages)? Say for instance Novena Medical Center. Thanks.

Happy for you! In a similar boat. Meanwhile my GP friends are making 15$ per consult before rent.

1. Aesthetics
2. Specialist
3. GP

If you are not physically ugly, should consider mid career switch to aesthetics. Iíve made the switch and not looking back. Take home 25k/week. 9-5. 5.5 days/ week.

Best kept secret in medicine!

Thanks. So 28% overhead approximately?

How about Paragon medical? Or those neighbourhood clinics in mature estates?
