Unregistered Why work so hard and slog in hospitals for specialist training when you can be a locum? Good hours and good money and relatively easy job

Unregistered It's about money, but during the interview stage who would say that they enter medicine for the money

your Geri , gen med , renal doc more often than not after Im residency dunno what to apply, then ok let's put Geri as second choice as backup becuase dermatology I likely cannot get in anyway.
Psy trainees many many is I dun want be gp but I need a speciality.

I be frank la.
I choose FM because I don't like hospital calls. I like my pat to walk in to see me and walk out after seeing me. sometimes at work I dun feel respected by patient becuase I'm like a referralogist. come on la, mild acne u want derm referral? ok lo.
Its all about money.
Leave the real doctoring to the pple who want to doctor and earn less money.

Correct lo. Spend time explain, address ideas concerns expectations, treat the mild acne like a proper GP/FP should. Get paid any extra vs write referral? Nope. Got medal? Nope. Got praise? Nope. But then patient buay gam. Go OPS purpose is to get referral to see derm. Write complaint letter. You think OPS HOD will say wah Dr X you good. I support you. I will tell patient to F off mild acne need referral for what? Come on la. In the end will get patient early appt with derm la.
Those of us who are Drs will know la. Even the FPs will admit privately. But of course cannot say in front of all the young Drs la.

Most of the doctors Iíve met who have chosen such a route have done so not out of genuine interest (eg lifestyle, disenchAnted with hospital work, canít get specialty training etc)
