Clinical Fellowship in Singapore after MRCS

Hello sir

I have recently finished DNB Ortho and i have also cleared MRCS Part A. Planning to go for Part B in 2019. Sir I was wondering if u could tell me about prospects of getting training posts in Singapore. As I hear it is difficult to get one in the UK.

I read on your page 'World Surgery Forum' that one of the countries where MRCS may have recognition is Singapore. But I am unable to find much info about the system etc there

Please help ... Thank you!



International Medical Graduates can take following routes to practice in Singapore 

Indian Graduates from following Medical Colleges can apply for fellowships directly without giving any exams:
  1. All-India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi 
  2. Christian Medical College, Vellore 
  3. Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC), Pune 
  4. Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research (JIPMER), Puducherry
  5. Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi
  6. Grant Medical College, Mumbai
  7. St. John’s Medical College, Bangalore
  8. Madras Medical College, Chennai
If you are not from any of these 8 colleges in India, then the next option is having a recognized medical qualification from any of these countries: UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, US and Canada. Thus MRCS is one qualification which you can obtain in India and it makes you eligible to apply for fellowships/ jobs in Singapore.

Singapore is not very conducive for foreign doctors from developing countries to become consultant grade but they have several gaps in the system for which they need doctors from India, Bangladesh, Philippines, Indonesia, etc to work as Medical Officers.

Following is a typical job description posted on a job website based in Singapore:
