Salaries For HOSPITAL Doctors working in Brunei (Locals and Expatriate)

I think this is the most popular questions posed to us, i.e. what's the salary like working in Brunei and what are the qualifications required? We have posted this information several months back, so this is a repeat... with some added information below..

N.B. This information is valid for Hospital Doctors only. GPs, Public Health and Dentist may have a different entry requirement and allowances.

The figure above summarizes the the current salaries of Hospital doctors working in Brunei. The basic pay is the same for locals and expatriate (foreign) doctors, the major difference however is that expatriate doctors gets other additional perks like:
  • $800/month of each child going to private schools
  • A gratuity which amounts up to 25% of 3 years cummulative basic pay salary which can be claimed at the end of their 3 year contract service (can be up to $30,000 - 61,200 depending on grade)
  • Free health care
  • Heavily subsidised (Almost free) Housing

Currently the salaries are being revised and will undergo some big changes in the figures. The clinicians have been working very hard in co-operation with the Ministry of Health and with a strong support from our Minister, a proposal have been met by the Public Service Commision & the Salary Committee. Insyallah, gods' will the new salary scheme will be rolled out once approval have been met.

BDMC is very optimistic that this will happen in the near future.

I'm an expatriate doctor and I like to apply with the Dept of Medical Services. Aside from the CV and certificates, do I also need to submit the SPA application form or is this for locals only?

First things first, figure out your addiction. Are you addicted to drugs like cocaine, heroin or to alcohol? Drug rehab centers usually offers specialized services. In case you are battling the problem of alcoholism, you can enrol in for a rehab center meant specifically for putting an end to incessant drinking.

Remember that is only a trained professional and expert that can understand your addiction and problems in detail and can in turn provide appropriate solutions for the same.
