Nope. There are way too many doctors in Singapore. Oversupply. There are literally hundreds of thousands of doctors from USA, UK, NZ, Australia wanting to move to Singapore too. And millions from India.

Got a fake Indian doctor even managed to lecture in Duke-NUS medical school for years, and it was only until he migrated to USA that he got caught by US authorities! Moral of story is, if you graduate from India it is definitely better to work in Singapore because Singapore don't check India's medical qualifications strictly. Other developed countries like USA, Canada, Australia don't allow Indian doctors to work in their countries that easily.

The only good one I can think of is to go to India.

Unregistered In senior positions you are not compensated solely based on the hours you work but on the responsibilitied you take on. And maybe a little for your "expertise"

it's the juniors that are underpaid..
But not everybody can become con

Not everybody can become partner in law or accounting
