Hi everyone. I am generally confused about a few points regarding the residency for a non-EU citizen that graduated in Italy.

1- Can the specialization exam be repeated to get a better score, for a better chance to match into a residency spot?
2- After completing the residency training, how hard is it to secure a job afterwards being a non-EU citizen? As far as I have read Italy is in need for physicians in the recent years and is expected to need more in coming years too; is that true?
3- Which specialities are relatively easier to get into?
4- What are the average salaries like? I've seen different websites citing different numbers, so I'm uncertain of it.

Thank you in advance!

1 yes you can repeat the test as many times as you want
2 not sure, I guess it depends on your specialty. Italy is in need for anesthesiologists
3 Anesthesia (there are many spots each year), pathology, psychiatry
4 during residency is about 1500/month. which is really good if you live in the south, not that great if you live in Milan
