It depends on which visa status you finished the residency with.

If you were on J1 Visa. Then you'll get a waiver job for 3-4 years and then you'll get your green card and then start working as any other US doctor.

If you were on H1 Visa, you don't need to do a waiver job and you start working right away.

As for job opportunities, there's big shortage in most of the specialties and you'll get a job in the place that you like.

Salary ranges from $120K to $1M per year.

Highly inflated don't you think? I don't even think Plastics makes that much per year (even after years of experience)
