    personally I feel endebted to work and pay tax for a while in the UK given the cost of educating med students.

    America is a massive effort by all accounts.

    UK has highest pay in Europe. Very few countries are higher. Australia do not pay more that the UK I believe.

    Approximate (Australian $)

    Basic Salary
    Intern 60,000
    Resident/SHO 60-75,000
    Registrar 75-100,000
    Consultant (Specialist) 150-300,000

    Basic salary - assumes a working week of 38 hours
