I am a foreign medical graduate from Germany (ECFMG licensed ) with OB/GYN postgraduate training.I have several years of OR experience and always enjoyed to do surgeries.Now I am thinking to get the SA-C certification through the American board of surgical assistants. Can anybody advise me how the prospects are to get a surgical first assistant job after the certification? I am willing to relocate but would like to explore the possibilities first where I live. Our hospital is university-affiliated and has residents which assist first place so I would think they are not interested to hire a surgical first assistant first place.
I would really appreciate any advise you could give me....!!!
