Please don’t give the misconception that if one gets MBBS overseas, they can work as a medical doctor in SG immediately. That is incorrect, they have to take a qualifying exam first and many with overseas MBBS find that a hassle and don’t usually take the exam. Most of them end up doing research work instead.

I have quite a few compatriots who are overseas grads working as physicians in Singapore.It makes it easier if the med school is recognised by the SMC.That list of med schools has recently been trimmed making the entry more difficult as a ' plain ' MBBS .

To address your statement , it was a tad easier to be registered with the SMC around 1-2 years ago.If you look at my first post , I did come in on an EP and was immediately registered .

Yes you are right.

Up to 2019, they’ve approved 9 institutes from India. But cut it down to only 2 from 2020.

Links attached.
