Unregistered Is your wife Singaporean? Besides Singapore being a safer place to raise kids compared to USA, is there any other reason for coming back to Singapore?

You should be welcomed home then, given the push away from globalisation we value foreign-trained Singaporeans to avoid the tendency towards academic inbreeding if we only rely too much on the NUS YLL/Duke NUS/NTU grads.

Plus Singapore should be for true blue Singaporeans after all.

Then you should be very happy to come back home. What's the worry?

Why didn't you do medical school in one of the Singapore med schools?

US system is post grad for medical school. So it takes longer.

So be prepared to face some hostility when you move to Singapore.

Peaceful civil society.

Each system has its own problems and benefits.

I would say the requirements of your personal life decide where you should practice.
