Thats why i say, depends on cluster.
also have to take into account old benefits plan which is a lot better than new ones.
unless it is cluster policy cannot compare old vs new. last time can use hr benefits to buy plane tickets go holiday one.

If boss can help to share would be good for everyone in the forum!

Silly qn, if gdfm really so "useless" and undervalued by the fm fraternity, why not just scrape the course completely and increase the mmed intake yearly?

Heritage problem and no one with the iron in them to start on clean slate

Too many private gp in 80s and 90s
U can't suddenly say they are not recognised.
Gdfm was created to let them at least learn some medicine
The fp register was created to entice them

The idea was that gdfm should be phased out and straight m.med as per a 3 year training like every other country in the world.
Some genius scholar took over mom and decide that Singapore should be the moyo of the east and put all money into training specialist.this was early 2000

Gdfm was then allowed to continue so that at least got some doctor to serve local needs.
20 years of sub par gdfm standard.
Only this last 2 to 3 year serious efforts taken to improve it

Now gdfm sit same McQ as m.med
Gdfm osce now is a proper station with sp. It was more like a viva testing previously where U just talk through the station and U talk through the examination.

So now, what they are doing is not scrapping the gdfm
But rasing the gdfm standard

Unfortunately
This means got 20 years worth of subpar gdfm fp out there.

Residency takes nearly 100 resident and program b another 30 a year
130 potential m.meder a year.
Ok la.

I see. Understand after your explanation.
On a separate note, do you feel that the healthcare system (esp public) is very reactive rather than proactive in nature?
Meaning that react or adjust only after event/crap happens and do not have the foresight to anticipate problems (like what good leaders or companies should)


For example,
1) over training of specialist via the residency system, only to realize lately in Singapore rapidly ageing population, fm needed to control cost and for more cost efficient care
2) gdfm policy as discussed above.
3) I would argue telemedicine as well. Prior to COVID, management were concerned about it's effectiveness, pdpa etc, only when shitte (covid) hits the fan, the we mass adopt telemedicine (i.e reaction to a situation)

These are of course macro level matters. But I see it a lot in day-to-day micro practice as well.
- e.g new workflows (usually in the form of more paperwork) being introduced after a complaint case/near miss

I hope that healthier sg is thought out carefully and not some random ill thought out/impractical concept by our healthcare leaders in administration

U see there is no reward for taking risk
But plenty of downside for taking risk

Once u become ops head u know
