Only MBBS is recognized elsewhere.

So after becoming a consultant here and going US to become a medical officer is not worth it.

So if i had plans to go to US I would have done it earlier in the career rather that later


you've probably been here for less than 10 years.

if they've worked here, any doctor from UK/US would very much prefer to be working back home than in singapore.

the new residency program is rubbish. may i ask why did you study here instead of in the US or else where?

well, because of that you'll just have to endure your slow climb out of the AC hole that you've spent your prior years digging.

from the onset you should have known all your studies and hard work would not amount to much outside of singapore.

this is the sign of things to come, and you should have figured a way to out back then. but you didn't

i hope you're in a cluster that treat their slaves slightly better than the other 2.

My post didn't mean I was unhappy here. That was just a counter-argument.

Yes,I am aware of the problems, but I am happy. May be my priorities are different.

She is doing her PhD now. U mean if she doesnt get the degree? havent thought about that. She likes NTU very much and likes the work, so dont really find a reson for why that question should arise..

A third to half of PHD students 'fail' worldwide. Not sure about Singapore - I guess if she's paid the fees they'll let her pass (and we wonder why Singapore U's are rated so poorly). All I'm saying is 'plans of mice and men are subject to change'.

Applied for PR in Sep 2012 , had a male child in between, applied for PR for him too in Sep 2013. No reply yet.

Indian, almost 6 years, doctor , 120 K
Wife Indian, 2 years PhD student

My colleague who is Indian applied end of last year and got PR within few months, he is a doctor, only difference is that he has a condo. No children.

medical doctors don't get any one up for PR ......
