    If you graduate from med school in Europe (like Jagiellonian University) would you be able to have residency anywhere in Europe or do you have to take an exam? Thanks!

    From what I've heard you can practice anywhere in the European Union. I'm not sure about the exam part. I'm guessing you still have to follow the rules of the country where you'd want to practice. So if you're required to take some kind of exam to practice medicine then I'm assuming you'd have to take it.

    I know if you graduate from U Jag then you're approved to practice in every since state in the US without a problem. However, you still have to take your board exams just like every other person who went to medical school within the US.

    This varies -- sometimes quite significantly -- from country to country. Your employment options will depend on your citizenship (EU or non-EU) in many countries, as well. Of course, your fluency in the local language/s will also play a very significant role.

    England is currently out of the question (even if you take and pass the PLAB, unless you are an EU/UK/EEA citizen). Scandinavian countries will almost never look at you for residency, but they may very well hire you after residency. France will require you to take their exam (in French) that determines who gets what residency, along with all of the French graduates. Germany is presently an option if you speak the language well and know your stuff. Et cetera.

    Of course, this is all subject to (dramatic) changes depending on political winds of the day. The situation as it stands now could look nothing at all like the situation in 4-6 years' time.
