New York "State 30" J-1 Visa Waivers - Program Information Bulletin
The New York State Department of Health is pleased to announce that the New York "State 30" program will sponsor up to thirty physicians annually who hold J-1 visas and who seek waivers of the home residence requirement. In return, these physicians must agree to practice in federally-designated Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) or Medically Underserved Areas/Populations (MUA/Ps), or serve populations from these areas, for a period of three years. Up to ten (10) of the waivers can be granted to physicians whose work sites are not located in HPSAs or MUA/Ps but who care for patients who reside in HPSAs or MUA/Ps.
Applications for waivers under the New York "State 30" program for 2014 must be postmarked by December 4, 2013.
