FRACGP training is rather short. just 3 years.

this is actually same as mmed (fm)
so yup, i wouldnt use the word consultant here.

but FRACGP is indeed an FP registrable qualification, like GDFM.


anyway GP practice in aussie is very different to sinkie
in singapore all residential area is within 5km of hosp
in aussie, you got rural and whats not.

so your skillset might not be relevant.
suggest continue to stay in aussie

I tried to find information about this from google but it seems pretty confusing. Is MMED and GDFM considered equivalent in sg, and do you end up getting paid the same if you achieve fam med fellowship from either route? Also, if FRACGP seen as equivalent to MMED or GDFM and how does that affect the subsequent payscale?

Thanks

Lol I'm the original poster asking about FRACGP in singapore but I did not post that 400k comment haha. 400k is too much for a 1st year gp fellow in aus la, i think its more like 250-300k and inclusive of super (aka Australian CPF). Taking into account tax rates, its equivalent to a 200-220k salary in sg so very comparable to FP salaries in sg im assuming based on previous posts in this thread.

400k possible in Aus as a laojiao GP or if work in rural, but the same can be said for gps in sg.

Basically an IMG 2nd schedule, did HO in Singapore

Not sure if we will get full reg regardless of posting choice during the waiting time? Don't see any section specific to 2nd schedule + did HO in SG

Also if need to wait, is wait how long?

Thanks
My info is from a few years ago, things could have changed.

Process for conditional > full reg for Singaporeans who graduated from 2nd schedule unis and did PGY1 in Singapore
- Work at least 2 years with conditional reg
- Get invited to SMC Physician's Pledge ceremony and attend the ceremony - some people were invited to this in PGY3, other people only in PGY4, can't remember if anyone had to wait longer than that.
- Apply for full registration. This needs a supporting letter from HOD and CMB, which may be easy or difficult to get depending on posting.

Official information is at s://.healthprofessionals.gov.sg/smc/becoming-a-registered-doctor/register-of-medical-practitioners/full-registration

U come back is C reg.
Only private that take C reg is Raffles.
Suggest U don't be chained to them.

So U can only join Mohh or possibly interview for at one of the cluster polyclinic to get a job
Easy to be hired by Mohh.
But they can send U anywhere they want.
Polyclinic has been asking for manpower like no buddy business but Mohh don't sent us many

Harder to be hired by cluster polyclinic directly
Because each manpower is valuable.
They hire a dud who can't stand the pressure end up the clinic suck thumb

For fp registration in sg U need a registratable post-grad degree
Fracgp is registerable.
But U also need 3 years of relevant fp experience
Go see the accredition website what is acceptable.
Totally add up must be 3 years. Depending on your fracgp posting U might not meet 3 years if U newly minted.

Local context wise
FP is a register and hence fp is a protected tittle. Gp isnt
On the register U can provide healthier SG, Chas etc
To be on the register, lowest paper qualification is a local gdfm plus 3 years of relevant exp

M.med difference to gdfm is that if U work in public you will be on the consultant pathway while gdfm will be on the fp pathway. Salary of course will diverge but not big.
In private, no one cares.
Ur fracgp unfortunately puts U on fp pathway only.
FP -> senior fp-> principal fp.
FP starts about 150k to 160k annual. 8 K basic salary plus other variable component.
Increment bout 3 to 5 percent a year to basic
Promotion about 10 percent to basic plus increase to fp award and service. About 200k if U hit it in minimal time.
About 5 year to be senior fp
8 year to principal fp. I have a few principal fp sitting at 250 to 300k pa
Shall not mention consultant pathway since not relevant to you.

Sounds arduous

And the reward is only 300k a year
