I don't know how the state of healthcare in Singapore differs from Australia (I'm in the UK), but my understanding is that Singapore is the leading provider of healthcare in Asia.
I have a few friends who work as podiatrists in Singapore. In fact, I interviewed for a job to work out there too, but for one reason or another I decided to stay put. Although, with the poor weather we're having in Manchester at the moment I am slightly regretting that decision!!
Have a look at these websites, hopefully they will help you and give you the information you're looking for:
"Political Correctness" is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
The company I work for recently have opened a clinic in Singapore and word is that business is booming. Like MissB mentioned Singapore is on the higher scale of healthcare in the Asian region so undoubtedly you will have the support you need to do your job efficiently. Similary the fact that there are not many POD's in Singapore is always an attractive prospect for anyone thinking of going there for a career :)
Only thing that might put you off is the amount of diabetic foot ulcer patients you will end up seeing. A friend of mine who worked in Singapore said that the large majority of patients were those with foot ulcers. If that's no bother then you should be having a great time there.
All the best :)
