Medical Degree: Starting Salary in Singapore

What is the expected salary for a houseman in Singapore? How long does it take to become a Registrar, AC, Consulant? What are the corresponding salaries for a non competitive field like Family Medicine?

Heard some medical graduates break bond to join private, how is the career progression like? Thanks.

HO should be near to $5K.


How long does it take to become a Registrar, AC, Consulant?

HO (1st year) -> MO (2nd year) -> MO + MMed/GD (3rd year) -> Registrar (4th year provided you pass out from MMed/GD) -> AC (5th year provided you pass your Specialist Exit Examination & register with SAB) -> Consultant (Depend on vacancy. Consultant don't quit, a long of queue of AC don't get to be promoted).

But things may change, so check it out yourself.


What are the corresponding salaries for a non competitive field like Family Medicine?.

Can't give you an answer cause it is like comparing with apple & orange (employee vs self-employed).

Family Medicine may sound like a Specialist but they don't fall under SAB.

Most of them who get Family Medicine are actually self-employed working in neighborhood clinic (To me, it is the same as GP).


Heard some medical graduates break bond to join private, how is the career progression like? Thanks.

As local, you are bond for 5 (excluding housemanship / first year residency training) when you sign up for MBBS.

HO / TY Programmes maybe another type of bond.

Sponsorship for MMed/GD is also another type of bond.

When you mention 'medical graduates', which level is the doctor & what type of 'bond' you are taking about?

If you cannot even get the fact right, no one will bother to advice you.
