American Academy of Neurology Broadcasts Badmus J-1 Waiver Webinar

Posted by Ann Badmus | Jan 09, 2012 | 0 Comments

After residency or fellowship training is completed, all J-1 physicians (i.e., foreign medical graduates or international medical graduates) must return to their home country for two years or obtain a waiver of this requirement before they can be employed in H-1B (professional or specialty occupation) status or adjust to permanent residence (“green card”). 

The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) recently posted a recording and summary of the webinar, “The Immigration Prescription for J-1 Visa Waiver Success,” on its website.  In the webinar, immigration attorney Ann Massey Badmus, discusses the two-year home country rule; J-1 visa waivers; H-1B visa basics for physicians; and the path to permanent residence or green card.
