Hey guy, i dont know if this is the right forum to post this question, but I am a medical student in australia, and have been considering a career in the US for the past few months. I've been looking up all the extrance exams and stuff and feel that with some study i should be able to pass them, but the thing thats on my mind is, is the US worth it? The main attraction that US has is that it has some of the worlds best hospitals and doctors, while aus is excellent as well, the US more regarded. But from what i've been told, the doctors get crappy salaries over there, compared to interns over here, who easily endup making > $75,000 in their first year out of med school. and the pay only gets better. Whats the pay like of residents in the US? And when does it start to get umm...'respectable'...? Cheers P.S. if this isnt the right forum for this, then please let me know where to post this!
