I'm a 4th year medical student from Tunisia. Are there any available recommended residency programs abroad that I can join?

1) Abroad as in the US? Otherwise, as a US site we wouldn't have much information about foreign programs
2) If you are speaking of the US, have you taken the US licensing exams and done all the work required to apply to US residency programs?

Residency training does not result in a degree but rather a certificate of completion.

Completion of residency training would technically make you eligible for employment as a physician in the United States however it does not change your visa status or citizenship.

Getting into residency training in the US is a complicated procedure especially for someone who requires a visa. However it can be done if your school meet certain educational requirements. I suggest starting here for more information about the process: www.ecfmg.org
