Wanna do proper medicine like MMed/FCFP means killing yourself only. After all, complexity doesn't factor into your KPI, it's how many you see per hour. In a sense, no different from private GP, so why not see just as many but only ARI/MSK/Derm?

That said 8-5 and 24 days AL is hard to beat elsewhere. But agree Sat really sucks balls. Who decided that we still need to work 5.5 days when everyone else is 5 day week liao.

End of the day, choose your poison lo.

Like everyone else, I encourage you all to stay away from primary care. Waste your time only. The local system doesn't actually reward you being a proper family physician. OPS doesn't give you enough time, and in private... Well, if you don't antibiotics your URTI then how to keep clinic going? No money and patient buay song.
URTI mostly viral. Antibiotics use will promote antibiotic resistance.

Does prestige matter or good clinical training matter more?

Choosing between a subspecialized oncology fellowship at Harvard (more research focused) vs. MD Anderson (more clinically focused).

Can I ask the seniors here, where would be a good place, outside of ops/CH, to practice fm, so that one does not lose the knowledge gained from completing mmed?

I have been looking around and locuming at various gp groups, but most seem to be very corporate in nature, or simply just seeing acute self limiting conditions.

I don't like ops, but I do enjoy seeing chronic patients, potentially also looking at home care in the long run, but was wondering if there are any good places to practice in?

I am looking at fmc, but they don't seem to be hiring now.
