    Hello! I'm from Brazil and I have passed in Radiation Oncology AND Nuclear Medicine.

    Now I have terrible doubts about what to do.

    Here in Brazil, Nuclear Medicine's market is getting harder to enter. I think I'd be happier as a Nuclear Physician but I'm worried about the future.

    What can u say me about USA's nuclear medicine's market?? What about Radiation Oncology?? I have noticed that Brazil's market has being following USA's tendencies, with some years deficit...

    Thanks for your help!! I'm sorry about some English mistakes!!

    Rad Onc residency is much much more competetive than Nuc Med residency here in U.S. honestly, not sure about jobs after training.
