ANNEX B
Q&A on the Revised Schedule of the Medical Registration Act



Q1:

Which schools have been added to the revised Schedule?


A:

Please refer to the "List of Medical Schools in the Revised Schedule".


Q2:

Why wasn't the entire list of 176 schools from the pre-1993 Schedule restored?


A:

It is difficult to predict the nett longer-term effect of expanding the Schedule on the balance of talent attraction vs. talent loss from Singapore. In view of this uncertainty, it would be prudent to limit the size of the expansion of the Schedule and not restore the entire list of 176.


Q3:

When will the new Schedule come into effect?


A:

The new Schedule takes effect from 14 March 2003.


Q4:

I graduated from a medical school that has now been included in the revised Schedule. Will my degree be recognised even though I graduated before the new Schedule took effect on 14 Mar 2003?


A:

All medical graduates from the universities/medical schools that have been added to the revised Schedule will be eligible for conditional registration by the Singapore Medical Council (SMC), including those who had graduated before the implementation date of the new Schedule.
Graduates from these newly added medical schools who are currently practising in Singapore under temporary registration may apply to the SMC for conversion to conditional registration.


Q5:

I graduated from a medical school that is not on the revised Schedule. Will I be able to practise in Singapore?


A:

Graduates from medical schools that are not on the revised Schedule may still apply to the SMC to practise under temporary registration.


Q6:

How were the schools on the revised Schedule selected?


A:

The SMC considered all medical schools listed in the World Health Organisation's World Directory of Medical Schools, and took into account many factors in making their recommendations as to which schools should be included in the revised Schedule. Some of these factors included the medium of instruction in the schools as well as the compatibility of the schools' curriculum and training with our local system and practice.
Feedback and recommendations were also sought from the professional associations - Academy of Medicine Singapore, College of Family Physicians Singapore, Singapore Medical Association - and from the public healthcare clusters - National Healthcare Group and Singapore Health Services.
Due to the need to limit the number of medical schools being added to the list, it should not be inferred that any medical school that does not appear on the Schedule is necessarily inferior to those that have been included.


Q7:

When will the quota on Singaporean medical students at the Universities of Melbourne and Sydney be removed?


A:

The quota will be lifted with effect from the 2003 admissions exercises, which will affect the enrolment into medicine at Melbourne and Sydney from 2004 onwards.


Q8:

Will this revision of the Schedule lead to an oversupply of doctors in Singapore in 10 years time? If that happens, will the Ministry revise the Schedule again?


A:

MOH's assessment is that this revision of the Schedule will not lead to an oversupply of doctors for two reasons. Firstly, we have limited the number of medical schools that have been added to the expanded list. Secondly, all foreign-trained doctors must have a job offer from a local employer (usually within the public sector) before they can be considered by the SMC for registration. There is little danger of oversupply within the public sector as the manpower establishments in the clusters are closely monitored by MOH. MOH will review its registration policies as and when the need arises.
