After residency, I've strongly considered practicing medicine in another country. I'd like to become more informed about this option. It's pointless to belabor the numerous reasons of why medicine is not what it used to be, and not a fulfilling profession for many. In the US, medicine is a business, and that's hard to stomach at times, so I wanted to be more proactive about finding alternative ways to be happy practicing medicine. Long story short, I was wondering what the process is for a US trained physician to practice abroad or in another country (i.e. Canada). Are there restrictions that make it easier/harder for different types of doctors (PCP's vs. specialists) to practice in other countries? Could specialty choice affect ability to practice outside the US? Can someone direct me to resources to learn about this? Thank you.
