All specialty applications must demonstrate a "dire need" for the specialty in order to obtain support for the physician’s waiver request.

Application Review: Rolling Review based on applications received 10/1 until full

Notes: Physicians must have completed a US residency in primary care.

J1 physician's salary must be equal to at least 100% of the Level 2 of the prevailing wage found on the U.S. Dept. of Labor Wage Search on the DOL web page.
