How much does the average family doctor in Singapore earn?
According to a survey by the Singapore Medical Association, General Practitioners (GPs) in Singapore take home an average monthly income of $10,524.
However the median monthly income is $13,758 – this means the average value of $10,524 is skewed more by the lower earners than the higher earners.
The bad news is that 10 years ago, the average income was $10,271. There has not been much of an increase for the past 10 years!
What I can say from this is: GP doctors are increasingly becoming less attractive (at least economically) as a profession. Students, if you want to be a doctor, work hard and aim to be specialists who can earn much much more than GPs (see my post on doctors’ pay).
