It is based on departmental/hospital needs, rather than a fixed number of positions. In general most ACs will be promoted after 2 years of satisfactory performance and fulfill publication requirements.

MOH should change the structure of the healthcare system.

All the government hospitals should only see subsidized patients. All the A class wards and paying patient work should be moved to a "Private Hospital" setup separately but owned and run by the government. Sort of like a "NTUC" version of private hospital to challenge and compete with Mt E and Gleneagles. Open a few of these.

Churn out the specialists from the public hospitals and then give them jobs in the "Private Hospitals". Work sort of like the SAF system with their scholars and generals and Stat Boards.

Full reg = get indemnity insurance.

Conditional reg = do not recommend you to locum unless you wanna switch career

Thank you for responding.

Is the publication requirement tied more to number of papers or impact factor (or both)?

Better get insurance. Private sector is way more dangerous.

One of the healthcare clusters is giving a full 1.0 end yr CVB to their staff. I am very interested to know how much we MOHH staff are going to get. They also receive it in December.
This cluster also gave 0.9+$800 mid year CVB when we only got 0.55.
MOHH is such a joke

Op here. Do most people get mps? Or are there any other options available?
