Doctors Salary

Postby Mr Always » Fri, 27 Jul 2007 2:08 am

Hi,

I am a Sri Lankan Doctor with 6+ years of clinical experience. I got a job offer (Resident Medical Officer/ RMO) from NUH. I was asked to mention the expected salary in the application form. I have searched many web sites to get information on Doctors salary. But failed :???: to get useful information on Salary for a RMO in Singapore.

Could any body help me in this regard? And are Doctors provided with housing allowance and alike benifits?

Thanks in advance :)

Hello, when you say excluding cpf, does it mean the salary quoted is the gross salary before CPF deductions?

Also does it include call and night shift allowances?

When you say, junior bone specialist, do you mean a registrar (doctor who has completed BST basic specialist training and obtained MMed and is under going AST advance specialist training) or a junior consultant (doctor who has just completed AST and got on the specialist register)?

As for the non-specialist doctors in hospitals, there is a career track now that allows them to become experienced resident physician or family physicians. What is their approximate salary range?

Thanks!

Hi

I was told by the HR executive that she is "holding" my application and will contact later (in 06 month time) :o

Can any body tell me what is the meaning of "Holding" the application when they earlier advertised that a post is vacant and called for sending application for it?
:shock:

It generally means "not quite what we are looking for" but also means there is enough there to warrant looking at it again but maybe not for the primary position advertsied but for an anticipated alternative position. At the same time, you need to continue with you job search and not put all your eggs into one basket as someone else may also apply who is worth looking at when more headcount becomes available and you may lose out there as well. Don't throw it away but do not bank on it either if you get what I mean.

Hello Mr Always,
What happened after your application was put on "holding" situation? Any news. by the way i wanted to know, how you applied for the Job in Singapore in the first place. Did you use Singhealth or NHG websites or any other sources.
