In Brief: A Digest of Healthcare Immigration Projects

Client Success
  • Assisted hospitals in medically underserved areas with hiring foreign national physicians and applying on behalf of the physicians for J-1 waivers through the Conrad 30 program. Upon approval of the waiver, we secured the physician work-authorized immigration status to begin employment with the hospital at the start of the contract period.
  • Prepared nonimmigrant (temporary) and immigrant (permanent resident) petitions on behalf of healthcare providers for doctors, teaching nurses, lab technicians, biologists, microbiologists, other research scientists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other healthcare workers.
  • Prepared petitions for permanent residency for candidates who do not qualify for the traditional employment-based permanent residency process. We analyzed the candidates' credentials for alternative approaches such as EB-1 or national interest waiver.
  • Counseled healthcare providers of all sizes on developing plans for hiring and retaining foreign national workers, including analyzing hiring policies and employment contracts.
