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.
