3 proverbs for you:

"Real gold does not fear the test of fire".

"A rising tide raises all ships".

"A lion doesn't concern itself with the opinion of sheep"
In a ideal world yes
In asian , south asian and southeast asian countries no.
If u r too good, u be seen as a threat

Even if u r good, u publish a lot, u must always put ur boss and boss boss name on publication
Thats the asian culture for u
So generally we stay low.

I actually meant the supervisors/department heads who are real gold won't be afraid of competition.

The comment referring to sheeps was directed to the petty mindedness of the poster who is afraid of "foreign talent" stealing jobs.

I have worked hard and I am proud of my achievements thus far. On the other hand, I am not delusional to think that I will come to make waves in Singapore. I enjoy my work taking care of my patients, and enjoy the academic rigors that research provides. I'm really not looking to take over their jobs anyway.

Putting my supervisors' names on the papers is a rite of passage of academia, and I have no qualms so long as the order of authorship commensurates with the value of their input. Hopefully they will also include me on their other ongoing projects. My comment about rising tide raises all ships refers to this.

I recognize the value that I will bring to the department in terms of academic productivity and a different perspective on management, and there is no need to be afraid of a random physician who simply wants to relocate for personal reasons.

Don't listen to the sheeps.
You are an accomplished doctor from overseas. USA? You are already much better than the local drs. They only have the UK and local qualifications. Nothing great.

You WILL make waves when you come to Singapore. Please come to Singapore. We need more foreign trained doctors. The local standard is falling.

Just note that on Sg, there are different demands.

You might be stunned by the quota for papers and also teaching load.

If you go into GP, you will double up as pharmacist.

There's less freedom in Sg compared to USA.

You might also want to be familiar with the tax laws in Sg.

Many doctors have been caught for tax issues.

Btw can i check if u r white

Due to 137 years of colonalism, most singaporeans still find white doctors more competent
Im sure this happens in the usa right?

He wouldn't be stun de la
Based on his own admission, he is more capable than even the president of whatever speciality he is in
If the current president is surviving in sg, he will confirm flourish
Come, the golden lion on a rising tide from USA
Singapore NEEDS YOU.
OUR legs open big big for true talents like you

What kinds of freedom are we discussing?

I don't need the freedom to protest... The freedom of being able to walk home alone at 2am safely without fear of being mugged, raped or murdered is more valuable to me.

Can you elaborate further on the tax laws to be mindful of or tax issues that doctors have had issues in the past? Thanks.
