Working as doctors in Singapore

Singapore, despite being a very crowded country, is the best place to do business in the world. Being the gold mine for business, how about the doctors there? Yes, they also face the doctor-shortage crisis…

But for junior physicians to work in Singapore, here are the lists of recognised medical schools by Singapore Medical Council (SMC). Apparently, Russian medical schools are not recognized, so no chance for Russian medical graduates to work there. And the only medical colleges in Malaysia which are recognized by SMC are Faculties of Medicines of UM and UKM, in which any medical twinning programs provided by UM and UKM will not be recognized. WoW! Singapore is really maintaining its high standard, huh?

No worries, if you still want to work in Singapore but your med schools aren’t recognized, you can try working there as specialists. But, jeng jeng, the Specialist Accreditation Board of Singapore is even tougher. To register as specialists in Singapore, here is a list of medical qualifications eligible for specialist accreditation. Wahahaha! Now, how tough is it to work in Singapore?

I never thought of eyeing Singapore (too crowded and kiasu), but, WTH right? People can change… if I ever work there (haha I wish!) and I miss home, I can simply drive up north 😉
