Got it. Another route I guess is to requalify as a nurse - always demand, and again having an MBBS should make the switch pretty easy

Errr. Again, from what I know.... having an MBBS won't give you a leg up to re-qualify as a nurse :)

and there's another set of hierarchy to navigate. And hoops to jump through.

Years ago there was some news about doctors re training as nurse to move overseas, from an Asian country, to join their spouse or family. I don't know how true that was ....

I said, if you had been taking up Geriatrics, the process would be faster, but still, as a foreigner, you will NEVER get anything beyond Temporary Registration -> T Reg under close supervision...


it's possible to attain C reg... and i suppose if he/she pays her dues and plays the game, getting full registration is more of a reality now than it was 5 years ago...

in recent years, there are more and more FMGs that have easily obtained C reg... and also full reg. sometimes (from my observation) in a much shorter duration than i had expected.

i suppose it's MOH's way of easing up on things. hopefully for the better.

@ ecure - i didn't realize emergency had given a (better) answer (than i could ever give). ignore my last reply (i'm reading the thread from old to new).

@ vaishnavi - qualifications count for a lot in singapore. IMO, if you have obtained membership and fellowship from the royal colleges AND you play the game... you'll likely get full registration after about 3-5 years in C reg.

unless the system has changed, mindef only sends people to NTU and NUS med schools (on the most commonly granted scholarship for medical students - MINDEF Local Study Award M/D) . these students get to defer NS after a few months.

MINDEF scholarships for overseas study are not valid for professional qualifications.

male conscripts going to overseas med schools have to pay their own way (>$100k of course), and can only defer NS after about a year.

And most likely in the same hospital :) from I have seen ! There are folks 10 years later, in the same hospital cluster.


they didn't play the game, are not well trained, or don't like taking cr@p from rubbish seniors/colleagues.

Hi everyone
I'm a newly graduate from Myanmar,holding MBBS degree,now working as junior medical officer in a private hospital. I'm not sure my medical is degree is recognized by SMC!
I'm wondering how can I apply a job as a doctor in Singapore & what qualifications are required for that.
I would be a great help for my career. Plz help me with your thoughts :-)
Would it be helpful if I got MRCP certificate?

I don't want to be the one to break your bubble of hope, but sadly, there are no medical degrees from Myanmar recognized by the SMC

Why not clock a few years experience before giving Singapore a shot ?

cool, i wish i found these forum when i first moved here. somuch info given here.

anyway i'm also a foreign doctor from nonrecognized uni. I've gone thru all the steps described by our dear fellows taxico and ecureilx. however now I'm in the waiting period for SMC's approval of my T-Reg. It's been 6 month already since July. all the requirements are completed. nothing that i cannot provide.
my BIG question is HOW LONG i should wait ?
what else can be done ?

fyi the communication to SMC is done by the HR of the hospital that hired me. SMC never responded directly to my inquiries.
every month when i follow up to my HR, the response is always the same saying that my application is still under review of SMC/MOH and i will be updated again once there is an outcome/further update.
its been 6 months and counting.. is that NORMAL?

has anyone out there ever experienced it ? or at least know somebody in my situation ?
