Healthcare Professionals

The Association of American Medical Colleges estimates that the United States will have a shortage of up to 120,000 physicians by 2030. Healthcare organizations are very cognizant of this shortage as even today it is very hard to recruit physicians. If your organization is seeking to hire a foreign national physician, we can help with every step of the process from the J-1 Conrad 30 Waiver process to H-1B to permanent residence.

We work with many healthcare organizations, large and small, in taking care of their immigration needs so that executives and physicians can focus on keeping our communities healthy and not have to worry about arbitrary and onerous immigration rules.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I start the J-1 Physician Waiver process?
It is best practice to make your hiring decisions by the beginning of summer in the year preceding the projected hire year. Waiver applications can be submitted in September for potential start dates the following July. Waiver applications can be time consuming and document heavy, so give yourself plenty of time.
Can I apply for an H-1B visa as soon as the waiver is approved?
Yes. H-1B visas for those who obtain J-1 Physician Waivers are exempt from the numerical cap.
Do I have to go through the same permanent residence process for physical therapists and nurses?
No. Physical therapists and nurses can be petitioned by employers using more lenient rules making the process much faster and simpler.
