What sort of information? :???:

Yes, they have ophthalmologists here. And you might want to get you eyesight checked :P as you apparently cannot see your screen properly. Otherwise I am sure you wouldn't have misspelled your occupation.

Information on the best way to go about looking for a job. I went through the websites of Singhealth and nhg, there are some information there, but would these websites be the best way to go about jobsearch? Thanks.

Thanks for the information. SMS

I went through the Ministry of Health site too. There are some useful information there, but there is one thing that i couldn'nt find the information on.. i.e my basic medical degree is recognised by the Singapore Medical Council, but my post graduate degree is not. So is there an test or some training that i can undertake to make my current post graduate degree count?

I really could not find any information on this-thus far, it would be a great help if anyone could shed some light on this situation. Thanks :)

I would think that if your basic degree is recognized for acceptance into the Singapore Medical Profession, then that would be sufficient (assuming that the specialty is covered in your basic medical degree. Other than that, I am afraid you might have to pick up the phone or maybe see if you can find an email addy. I really don't have the answer. Maybe somebody else does and will eventually see this post and reply.

I did sign up with the Singhealth and sent a couple of e mails with my CV. And i got some acknowledgements not much else. Is this the normally the way to go about the process of prospecting for a job. Anyone here been in this situation. Kindly shed some light, looks like i am shooting in the dark. :?
