If you just want to do clinical in ops or gp land, I think mmed enough. At least that's what I feel la, having worked in ops 2 years post mmed.

I heard from my senior who is doing fellowship that the fcfp course like very poorly run by the college, it's like everything you need to source for yourself.(like research idea, get ethics approval, find complex cases etc) - also practically impossible to do it without institution support (unlike programme b)
- my senior said he got more support from my institution (ops) than the college itself, although the program is technically under college, and not under the SIs. (Unlikely residency for e.g)

Very strange/different to a senior residency program of other specialities, which I guess is what fcfp essentially
is. Like other SR programme (be it surgical/medical) is more structured and guided I feel.
Just my personal feelings/thoughts
Wondering if other people who did /passed fcfp feel the same?
not surprising. FCFP is damn shag cos it's all run by FPs (private and institution) who already have their day jobs, and still need to run FCFP outside of their actual clinical duties / businesses to run.

FCFP sounds like another of those titles to collect and show off. It is only useful for institution and management/leadership appointments. Which frankly is not where the money is.
Don't waste your time unless you are already in a position to go higher for management/leadership but need the FCFP to seal the deal.

Yea I wonder also. Increasingly feel like taking FCFP is going to be a waste of time.

depends on what you mean by waste time
some people feel 'wasting time' is seeing 100 URTI GE per day
some people want to go HQ and shake leg and write policies
'wasting time' is relative, depends on your values and what you prioritise in life

actually.... management / leadership appointments probably still earn more than your regular salaried GP pay because even post MMed, the annual is already close to 200k. AC 200+k plus.
if you become C and above, plus leadership positions, the pay will surely exceed a salaried GP.

of course if you have profit sharing / own the clinic it's a different story. sky is the limit depending on patient load, aesthetics, etc

True la. Best is 8-5 at most with reasonable pay.

I guess we're all so top heavy now that even FCFP can guarantee anything.
