Foreign Physicians & Healthcare professionals




Stevenson Silva LLP can help with the immigration of foreign physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, and our lawyers are uniquely experienced regarding Physician J-1 Waivers and Physician National Interest Waivers. We have successfully obtained J waivers through Interested Government Agency (IGA) sponsorship for many International Medical Graduate (IMG) physicians subject to the two-year home residency requirement, with the cooperation of a state Conrad 30 program or a federal agency program. We routinely work with not only individual doctors, but also private medical groups, hospitals, universities, and staffing companies.
