Physician Immigration Videos

Physician Immigration Videos Our physician immigration videos show how International Medical Graduates (IMGs) can do graduate medical education (GME) in the US, obtain J-1 and H-1B status, get J waivers and obtain permanent residence in the US.

Most IMGs take USMLE, steps I and II and do their medical residencies and fellowships using J-1 visas. This subjects them to the requirement that they return to their countries for two years following completion of their GME.

Fortunately, there are variety of way that IMGs can obtain J waivers. Our physician immigration videos discuss Conrad 30 and Federal IGA waivers as well as exceptional hardship and persecution waivers.
