April 24, 2018
02:00 PM (ET)
|Format||Live Web Seminar|
Practitioners need to know the practical considerations when filing nonimmigrant visa (NIV) and immigrant visa (IV) applications for physicians. Our panel of experts will discuss the next steps after a physician receives a J-1 waiver, including the timing of NIV application filings and when the physician needs to obtain licensure.
- What Is an “Unqualified Physician,” and Who Needs the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) and/or Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)?
- Physicians of National or International Renown (H-1B) or Acclaim (O-1): What Credentials Qualify?
- Physicians Qualifying for EB-1A, EB-1B: Do They Need USMLE and/or ECFMG?
- Canadian Physicians: What Is Required for the NIV or IV If the Physician Attended a Canadian Medical School?
- Other IV Categories: What Is Required If a Physician Proceeds with a National Interest Waiver or PERM? Do They Still Need USMLE and/or ECFMG?
