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.
It seems that Syrian and Egyptian doctors with US qualifications get well paid here - especially as they speak Arabic.
Indian and Pakistani fare less well - as they dont normally speak Arabic, therefore for them the passport is more important.
