We believe that immigrants are a critical piece of our nation's past and the future. Welcome to Healthcare Law Partners.
US Visas for Doctors - Doctors who are seeking work the US should bear in mind that there are special licensing requirements. It is important to start planning before the completion of medical school. Getting an H-1B visa is not always easy and even getting H-1B status is not free from problems. But Given today's COVID-19 environment, theose barriers have been reduced and a permanent EB-2 NIW visa is very possible. Foreign national physician should be able to get employment authorization in the US, especially in medically underserved areas or health professional shortage areas.
There is another option available for those who hold an advanced degree (Master's, Ph.D or an MD), this is a great new avenues for obtaining a green card. Given today's COVID-19 environment, these National Interest Waiver green cards have become more accessible than ever.
All states require physicians to be licensed to practice medicine, including physicians working in residency or fellowship programs. The H-1B requirements of the 1990 Act also require a physician to show that he or she possesses a state license "or other authorization" in order to perform patient care as well as a full and unrestricted license to practice in a foreign country or proof of graduation from a foreign medical school.
Note that some states will not issue a license without proof of the issuance of a visa.
As noted above, a physician needs to have passed one of the required medical examinations:
For many years, the USMLE has been the exclusive examination.
Doctors who have graduated from US medical schools only need to show they have graduated from a US medical school and that they possess the appropriate state license. Also, most of the above requirements above are waived for doctors who are of national or international renown in their area of specialization and who have graduated from a foreign medical school.
