Need to come back SG to work/register due family reasons.

Got an idea from a friend about the work involved, but wondering what's the remuneration like for PGY7 Internal Med RP. Abit pai seh to ask in person.
Auzzie quite easy to get into bpt
What have u been doing slacking there for so many years

U no post grad qualification right?
They take u as rp.
Bout 8k. Annual 120 to 130 all in aws bonus without counting calls.
If u have mrcp 1k more per month

Alternatively ask for hospital clinician job. Email them. Confirm someone will contact you
U sit for the srs diploma then consider have post grad liao.
Meet kpi, overall package 30 to 40k more than rp, ie 160k
They benchmark it to private GP salary ( bout 75 percentile )
3 years senior HC,
8 years principal HC, ceiling cap 250k ( Vs gen med senior con 300k)

Try look for palliative service. Work is more slack.
Gen med in sg not gen med in auzzie. Can do until chuan , very chuan.

Where are you doing call? What about sharing your current call rate ?

I think is longer than 1 year to go from conditional registration to full registration... SMC website says minimum period of 2 years as conditional registration before going to full registration (if Singaporean non specialist).

But in reality often takes longer than 2 years, due to need to attend the Physician's Pledge ceremony and get a testimonial from HOD/CMB for full registration...

If I am already board-certified in a specialty recognized by SAB and have been in independent practice for more than 5 years, am I allowed to enter any private practice as long as the specialist/owner is willing to "supervise" me?

Why would they want to supervise you?

They paying your pay yet dont derive any benefit

Usually practice is a one man show
Pte patients dont want to conditionally registered doctors
Hence no point for them to hire you

In public hospital, you see subsidized patients who are v keen to any dr
Especially if you are caucasian

Ang moh dr always better than sinkie one
