What to Know About: New York Medical Licenses for International Medical Graduates

Additional resources provided by the author

It is important for an IMG who intends to practice in NY post-residency to plan ahead! Start working with your immigration attorney as early as a year before your start date. Whether you are seeking a J-1 visa waiver or are transferring from an H-1B, the immigration and licensing processes can easily take 6 months or longer. I've written more articles and information on J-1 waivers, H-1Bs, and issues for IMGs that can be seen on my AVVO profile or by visiting our website (linked below, of course!)
