Conrad 30 Usage

Many foreign physicians come to the United States to study medicine through a residency or fellowship. They enter the U.S. with J-1 exchange visitor visas. After completing their programs, these doctors are required to return to their home countries for at least 2 years unless they obtain a J waiver.  One way to obtain a J waiver is through the Conrad 30 program. Each state can sponsor up to 30 International Medical Graduates (IMGs) for J waivers annually.

The vast majority of states sponsor primary care doctors, and most states also sponsor specialists.  Conrad 30 usage varies widely from state to state.  While some states fill their 30 slots within a day or a week, other states never use up their 30 slots.
