Are you familiar with the process for foreign international medical graduates applying for US residencies?

You would need to obtain either an H1B visa or a J1 visa.

After matching into a residency program, the program in most cases will actually sponsor your visa and petition on your behalf.

For more detailed information on the entire process, see:

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
