Hello this is not India

Unregistered Do fellowship positions for specialities get paid a salary during the year or do they get a grant? How much is that usually? For example an Australian trained anaesthetic fellow (completion of FANZCA).

I presume the hours are still horrible as a fellow?

No need to buy Asst Professorship. Just be willing to be the lord of residents and you will become one.

Profit driven approach to practice. If working for chain, pressure to show profits. Patient volume. Per patient billing $$$. No one will admit it but these can be considerations when deciding how you practice, what you prescribe etc. No profits....you're out.
The OPS is less focused on profits although it is a KPI for the HOD.

If you really want to practice good guideline driven medicine and cannot bring yourself to look at medicine as a business of profits and losses, $$$ then stick to OPS.

Also in pte, have to really pander to customer whims and fancies and a lot of small talk and PR skill is good. OPS not so much although if you are good with that it will be a bonus.

25k per mth as a family physciain with the polyclinic is possible
You just need to be the CEO of the cluster.
You can make about 180 to 250k as head, deputy head of a polyclinic. How many of them in Singapore?
Not a lot la. Also, not many want that job. Very headache one, I get emails sent out at 2am by my clinic heads ok. If want so many headache might as well chiong be a specialist in the first place. Tahan 6 years of night calls life much easier later on.

17k as private hired gp? Possible but u probably working 11 hours a day for 6 days a week. Mostly around 13 to 14k for a few nights and Saturday.

Ops not easy place to work if you want to do a good job. Patients very complicated, everything walk thru the door. Ops prefer m.med doc nowadays for that reason. I find private gp life easier clinically.. Mostly MC seeking, some minor complaints, simple diabetes , hypertension. Anything complicated refer to the poor ops family physician to sort out. But private gp got their own struggles la.
There are 20 Polyclinics in sg. So 20 Heads and 20 deputy heads.

Many foreign drs in IMC. Not from India or Asia.

I dont think they would work for small peanuts.
