Also drskg we were told if we had the three years US training in FM or IM with board certification and experience practicing in medicine in the United States after training then we'd make 700,000+ AED or at today's rate 190,580+ USD. However, I don't know what it would pay without the US citizenship or if it would make much of a difference after that point, but I am aware that at the point we're at right now the US citizenship does make the difference.
If we went onto a three year fellowship in Cardiology after a three year residency in Internal Medicine we'd be a specialist in the US and UAE and they can really make some money there, but of course not as much as working in that specialty in the United States.
