hi I am argentinean and working in US. Do you know were I can found info about working permit in spain?I believe that there was a thread on that issue before. You might have to set the time for the threads to be shown to something like a year.
You will have to write an exam (the MIR) before you can start a residency in spain. Similar to the competition for the USMLE, this exam is very popular with physicians in latin america who look at it as a passport to get into the EU. I believe the ministry of education administers the test. Maybe this overview from the BMA might help you:
You will need a work permit. The easiest way to get that is if you have 'EU rights', either through marriage to a EU citizen or through derivative citizenship (some EU countries have 'blood-right citizenship', you might be able to claim citizenship if your granddad was a citizen of a now EU country).
(I hope you paid for your medschool tuition out of your ample trust-fund. Salaries for junior docs in spain are pretty minimal).
Sorry, I don't. Given that you probably have a good command of the spanish language, you should be able to find that sort of information on spanish goverment websites.hi I am argentinean and working in US. Do you know were I can found info about working permit in spain?
I´m a Spanish resident, maybe I can help you with some of your questions... first of all... are you sure?? do you really want to do your residency in Spain?? if you are completely sure, it´s true, you have to pass an exam (a multiple choice question test of 260 questions in 5 hours) it takes about one year (studying 8-12 hours dayly) to prepare for this exam (to get a good mark, of couse you can hardly study if you want!!) once the exam is done you get a punctuation, the higher mark you get the better speciality/hospital you can choose... there isn´t any interview.
You can find all the information about the exam in this website (in Spanish)http://www.msc.es/profesionales/formacion/home.htm and about conditions for foreign people http://sis.msc.es/fse/PaginasEstaticas/InformacionGeneral/requisitos.aspx?MenuId=IE-00&SubMenuId=IE-08 (also in Spanish, the first condition is Spanish proficiency....)
Hope that helps!!!
