It depends :???: ! as a foreign doctor, you should get a job opportunity first to earn experience if you are lucky enough. We have so many Indian doctors earn 10,000SGD+/month :wink

well, since you are a qualified eye surgeon, send your resume to National Eye Centre, SGH or Changi Genernal Hospital, TTSH, etc..., see how the HR officer count and accept your qualification and experience...

you will get a job with such recognized qualifications. (i presume GLASG because you're based in india?)

i don't believe there's much distinction in the public eye (pun intended) between FRCSi, FRCS, FRCophth or MRCSed due to strict regulation and qualification scrutiny by the medical council.

despite less money in the public sector and more stress and only prov registration, it's still good money (dependent on your experience).

you'll definitely be able to support a wife and child in singapore; others have done so with less pay. just finish it and clear your ICO if you can (for professional reasons).

your time spent in the public hospital will help you get the hang of the local patients and system. think of it as part of your training!

good luck, and here's an advanced welcome to the SMA. don't forget to get your SMC car label and SMA credit card on your way out.

taxico, m.d.

ok that sound reassuring ( at least a glimmer of hope :D )
Why only a provisional registartion .. why not a conditional registration ?
and is there a chance of a full registration some years down the line
