Hi everyone, hoping u could help Im 5th year med school student from Serbia, ex Yugoslavia, Europe. I saw this forum and was hoping you guys can answer me some questions i would be very grateful. Im finishing my med school here in Serbia next year and would like to come to Brazil to do my residency programme in plastic and reconstructive surgery and Brazil has a great reputation in that field. How long does the residency last? ( i heard something about having to do 2 year general surgery residency first, is it true?? Cause here in Europe we go straight to plastics). What are the best programms in plastics( universities and hospitals) you think i should apply to and is there possibility of doing residency in english instead of portugese? What is the procedure for foreign med students? I would pay myself for my residency expenses. Thank you all for your time and patience. Greets!
