The Singapore Ministry of Well being (MOH) by its firm, MOH Holdings Pte Ltd, has put up a young asking for a proposal for the “Appointment of a Recruitment Company to Present Companies for the Recruitment of Docs in India“.

The tender was put up earlier this month on 6 Sep. It closes subsequent month on 10 Oct.

MOH Holdings (MOHH) is the holding firm of Singapore’s public healthcare clusters – Nationwide College Well being System, Nationwide Healthcare Group and Singapore Well being Companies. On its web site, the corporate stated:

In its tender doc, it stated that MOHH “intends to recruit medical doctors from India to work as Medical Officers in Singapore.” It stated that the recruitment company must “take part in and help with” MOHH’s recruitment journeys to India. The accountability of the company is to supply viable medical doctors from India.

MOHH added that it hopes to recruit 60 Medical Officers from India yearly from 2022 to 2024, with the choice to increase “this mission” for a further 12 months to 2025. In different phrases, MOHH desires to recruit as many as 240 Indian medical doctors from this tender mission over 4 years.

Are our tertiary institutions not producing enough doctors? 

I believe entry into the program at NUS is highly competitive, why can't they open more places? 

Sorry but I can't trust the paper that some overseas certs are printed on, let alone the qualifications the bearer claims to have.

This recruitment sourcing for doctors over there is because ah loong or ah heng sign the whatever ceca agreement? Even knowing their doctors are sub-par they will take in those willing to work at low pay? Imagine next time seeing an Indian doctor, sian 1/2.

Trying to keep medical cost sustainable in sg have to go thru such lengths? The thought of that is kinda scary.

on 18 Apr 2019, MOH suddenly announced that it would reduce the number of recognized foreign medical schools with effect from 1 Jan 2020. Only 2 Indian medical schools are left on the approved list: All‑India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), and Christian Medical College, Vellore.

Presumably, the 240 Indian doctors MOH would like to recruit would be coming from these 2 schools.

It’s common knowledge that the medical education system in India is frequently filled with fraud and scandals. Top medical schools like the All‑India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi is no exception.

For example in 2011, fraud was discovered in AIIMS’ entrance exams. A medical doctor who graduated from AIIMS together with others had been running a racket manipulating the answer sheets. Candidates would pay the gang several hundred thousands rupees to cheat in AIIMS’ entrance exams.

In 2014, AIIMS landed itself in a controversy over embezzlement of funds to the tune of 1 billion rupees. The revelation came after the Indian Health Ministry conducted an audit of AIIMS’s records over the past 5 years. It found that AIIMS had not refunded at least 530 million rupees to poor patients, who paid for various tests and treatment in advance. Irregularities were also found in the receipts for special procedures undertaken by patients. Furthermore, AIIMS had procured goods worth more than 330 million rupees without issuing any tenders.

In an investigative report, Reuters documented the full extent of fraud in India’s medical-education system. It found, among other things, that more than one out of every six of the country’s 398 medical schools has been accused of cheating. Rigging entrance exams or accepting bribes to admit students are common occurrences in India. Paying bribes – often in the guise of “donations” – to gain admission to Indian medical schools is widespread, as even the Indian Health Ministry admitted.

We want OPPO to ask questions when we see something not quite right, but, do we support the OPPO in the first place?

These are protected species and our government are very protective not to over supply to drive down their income. Now we are hearing a totally different story. Left and right somehow don't know what is going on.
