Nope. I think it means you have a bond to serve just like the usual medical students that attend NUS Medicine school. The course will take 5 years, followed by a 5 year bond (if you are PR or international student) or 4 year bond if you are a citizen. Service commitment = government bond to hospitals.

read carefully. its just that you have to serve the SG government for that number of years. Its because of the amount of $$$ the government sponsored for u to study medicine. they wan u to be bonded so you wont run away after becoming a doctor.

Actually I do not think that it is a requirement - but it could be something that you can apply for. I have seen drivers who are doctors because they studied overseas after NS and come back to serve their reservist as drivers. Its funny seeing the rank CPL (Dr).

Most likely for reservist, but im pretty sure they can sign on as regulars if they want after they complete the conversion course.

Is it compulory for overseas medical graduates to covert to MOs or one has to apply for it. If one is a 1SG, can he remain as one instead of having to covert. Can someone help on this.

It is not compulsory to convert. You will already be assigned your reservist vocation so if you don't request for it, chances are you will remain in your current vocation. I mentioned this in my post above.

All army talk stops here unless you have posts pertaining to Duke-NUS Medicine.

Otherwise, start another thread.
