Well, I not sure whether the MOH will have the ability to prevent local medical graduates (UKM and UM) to work in Singapore.

I guess the Dean of medical faculty got the news of students are not applying for the job at MOH. He proposes that they must complete the compulsory services before leaving.

I guess what he said is DAMN RIGHT.

I paid 250K for my medical study at private U, I still own 99K loan.

Public Universities medical course fees is just a few thousands per years.  The estimation cost of producing a doctor in a public university is almost same at a private U.

SO, since the tax payers  money, by not serving the country is simply not acceptable.

Anyway,  I doubt the Universities can do anything.
