AAMC Supports S1189- Doctors to be given Green Card Sooner ?

AAMC Writes to Senators Supporting S1189-Conrad 30

AAMC President and CEO Darrell G. Kirch, M.D has sent a letter to the sponsors of S-1189 Bill which has the provisions of making Conrad 30 permanent , and also has many other important changes added in the same. One of them being Giving Green card to All Doctors who have completed 5 years in Medically undeserved area by converting their Green card application to EB1 category. Indian Doctors Will be the most  benefited with this law as Priority dates of EB2 are retrogressed .

The Current Conrad 30 is set to expire on September 30 2015. If The Program sunsets on Sep 30, no new J1 sponsor will be eligible hence S 1189 is a very important bill  for doctors and medical Institutions.

The Letter states:

The AAMC projects a nationwide shortage of between 46,000-90,000 physicians by 2025. Though these shortfalls will affect all Americans, the most vulnerable populations in underserved areas will be the first to feel the impact (e.g., the Department of Veterans Affairs, Medicare and Medicaid patients, rural and urban community health centers, and the Indian Health Service). The AAMC also believes the primary barrier for graduates of international medical schools to practicing in the U.S. is the cap on Medicare support for GME imposed by the Balance Budget Act of 1997. Eliminating this bottleneck in the medical education pipeline is critical to improving physician immigration and addressing national workforce shortages. International medical graduates play an important role in the U.S. physician workforce, representing about a quarter of practicing physicians. The AAMC believes the J-1 exchange visitor visa is the most appropriate pathway for non-U.S. citizens to pursue U.S. graduate medical education, a requirement to practice medicine in our country
