Default AY2019 Medicine Affairs

HI GUYS I don't know if this forum is dead or what it seems sad that there isn't even a thread for 2019 med intake so I thought that I should start one

Anyone else gunning for a spot in any universities next year?

I've applied to Flinders, UWA, UTAS, UNSW and Monash(rejected by monash for a stupid reason though.. not even my ISAT score can save me sigh. SALTY AF)

Currently finished with UWA interview, scheduled for a skype interview with UNSW this coming Friday. Rejected by Monash

Waiting on Flinders and UTAS for news.

Anybody out there wanna share your current status!

I heard from my seniors that during a MOHH talk it was mentioned that the PEG grant is going to be abolished soon (within the next five years before we graduate) as they don't need overseas graduates anymore due to an impending shortage of residency spots(and by extension oversupply of doctors) in Singapore, is it true?

Yes, I heard PEG may halt for a while but I don’t think it will be abolished entirely.

I kinda beg to differ about the eventual over supply of Doctors in singapore. Reason being that if you read the recent papers about big new hospitals coming up in Seng Kang, Woodlands and etc. We will need more Doctors and plus with the ageing population, healthcare will be a main concern, which means we need more Doctors.

Have faith and let’s go for it!
