Each year, hospitals and healthcare organizations throughout the United States recruit Foreign-educated physicians (FEPs), also known as “international medical graduates” (IMGs) to join their organizations.
Nearly 30% of all the physicians in the US are IMGs and play an integral role in providing healthcare to for an increasingly multi-cultural patient population. IMGs also provide health care for underserved populations and are often more willing than their U.S. medical graduate (USMG) counterparts to practice in remote, rural areas.
The United States suffers from a shortage of primary care physicians, and the problem is expected to worsen. America’s baby boom generation is aging, and health care reform could put greater demands on doctors as more Americans gain medical insurance which is estimated to result in a shortage of physicians in the USA of 91,000 by 2020.
Despite the many benefits IMGs bring to the U.S. economy and the delivery of healthcare services, immigration procedures are often complex and the legal processes are overwhelming.
The KiImmigration Support Services team will guide you through the maze of immigration processes. With our knowledge of United States citizenship and immigration law, we can help you explore the options for work authorization and assist you with the documentation requirements necessary. The firm also provides legal advice and assistance to corporate clients in establishing employment compliance programs to meet immigration and labor department laws and regulations involving foreign workers.
