Romania and Bulgaria are in the European Union. But the problem is that you need to know the language. If you do know it, it is good. If you don't the experience you gain during PG is not much. Because of communication break down, there are alot of ppl who speak english but not understandable kind. If you are choosing surgery then it is alrite, not much communication needed there. Well as far as i know European Union Masters are recognized all over there place, but i didn't apply for a job. So i don't know actually how they weigh it?? Why i know so how abt all this eastern European country is because i been studying and working here for almost a decade now.
