Physician Job Search – Before a physician can be sponsored for either a J waiver of the two-year home residency requirement, a temporary (H-1B) working visa or permanent residence, he or she must obtain an appropriate offer of employment.
For physicians who need either a J waiver or a National Interest Waiver, they generally need to look for employment in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA), a Medically Underserved Area (MUA) or for a Medically Underserved Population (MUP). They may also work for the Veterans Administration, or in the case of a J waiver, for a FLEX 10 employer.
What follows is a listing of web sites designed to assist physicians in locating practice opportunities in shortage areas. Non-physicians who are searching for job opportunities may obtain access to over 500,000 employment openings, grouped by state and occupation. We also provide a list of nurse recruitment firms for your reference.
