Traditionally, graduates of British medical schools have been more interested in working in other English speaking countries than taking up their rights in the EU labour market. Linguistic differences are partly responsible, but the culture of employment can also be very different too. A new book, Recruitment, Training and Development, provides useful summaries of conditions in the labour market in each state. Although the information is not specific to medicine, perusing the relevant chapters will make planning a continental sojourn much easier and help you understand your workplace better when you arrive.
