    thanks again devildoc..
    infact i'l say u r an angeldoc for me..

    I juz wanted to know that in many countries an anaesthetist need not be sitting in the hospital for night shifts even if there is no case or emergency. They remain 'on call' and can reach the hospital if any emergency arrives. So I juz wanted to know wt's the scenario over there. It'll be very kind of you if you could update me in this regard.
    thanks once again

    hey...
    I talked to a consultancy run by dr.ashwin, who himself is doing residency in cardiology at Germany after M.D medicine from india.
    U'll get the details at pgingermany.com.
    N being Indians, v ought to help each other out. What I am confused about is we'll be able to practise in india successfully or not.. I mean there shud'nt be any legal things to be handled. Do u have any information in this regard?

    No idea about those types of details, as I am not training in anesthesia (nor in Germany). Sorry!

    hey devildoc..
    but what are the chances for an img to get into residency? I mean I completed my medical diploma with 64% average.. I scored 92% in hsc i.e 12th std and have a clean record. With this what are my chances to get into residency?

    The chances for an IMG can be quite good, in general, assuming you meet the criteria they are seeking. However, there are SO many different things that go into getting a position that it is impossible to say based on that small amount of information in your specific case. Yeah, your academics and not being a criminal are part of it, but it also depends (hugely) on how well you speak German and how well you interview. That much should be obvious. If you are utterly brilliant in clinic, but cannot communicate well, you will not get a job.

    It also depends on where you apply, what specialties you apply for, and whether you are already in Europe. (No agency will want to spend the money to fly you here from India for interviews when there are already excellent candidates within a stone´s throw.) I have written about these elements in detail elsewhere in VMD, feel free to check those threads out, as well.

    yeah I've been through them but what I wanted to know is if there's really a point in doing all this.
    I mean it's a major decision that's why I wanted to confirm from someone who actually knows the scenario.
    I've started learning the language. Besides that what should I prepare?
    I mean I've heard of an equivalency test for non-eu candidates. What's the test like?

    If you want to work in Germany, then there is certainly a point. If you do not try, then I can tell you with 100% certainty that you will not get a position. If you want a guarantee of success before you try, however, you are definitely looking in the wrong place.

    Re: any examination, I have no idea. I did not have to take an exam to start working because I have an EU medical degree. (Plus, I am working in Switzerland, which is non-EU.) If you have to take an examination, I am pretty sure that it will be reasonably challenging. Germany has high standards for medical care.

    Aside from learning German, I would recommend staying clinically active, at least 50% if not 100%. Not only will it help you keep your knowledge sharp (I had 5 months away from the clinic between graduation and starting work, and I was amazed at how quickly I forgot some things), but it will count as experience toward possibly increasing your salary later. I would also recommend a course in medical German. I would also try to find a good excuse to be in Germany (or someplace nearby) to help with learning German and cultural integration, and to make interviews easy and cheap to attend.

    thanks once again..
    and yeah I am determined enough to try hard, it's just that I wanted to know the fact..
    besides all the valuable information you gave me, can you tell me if there are any easy-to get-into states?
    Like where there is more shortage of doctors and an IMG can get there a bit quicker as compared to other regions..
    Similarly what are the most competitive branches... Like in india, radiology and internal medicine are the toughest to get branches and dermatology isnt that much preferred, whereas in Germany, as u told me, dermatology is a tougher to get branch.. So can u please tell me something regarding this?

    In the East it is generally easier to find a position (not including Berlin). It is still not guaranteed, of course, but easier than the West.

    As of last year there were many positions available in specialties like general internal medicine, anesthesia, pediatrics, and psychiatry -- the latter requiring extremely high-level German skills, for obvious reasons. However, I have not been tracking what is available this year because I am not looking. The best resource for that information is going to be a good German medical recruiter.
