New Hampshire

Practice Areas:  Preference will be given to physicians in primary care (i.e.: Family Practice, Pediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Internal Medicine, and Psychiatry) and in some sub-specialties (Geriatrics, Hospitalists, and General Surgery).

Application: New Hampshire will accept J-1 Visa waiver application packets from October 1st until July 1st each year. Applications packets received after July 1 will be held until the start of the new Federal Fiscal Year (Oct. 1st). Once applications are received they will be stamped with a date of receipt and reviewed on a case-by-case basis.  Designated slots will have priority over non-designated/ flex slots. The New Hampshire DPHS, RHPC will review each waiver application to determine how the placement will improve the accessibility of care in the underserved area and to ensure that the proposed placement will not adversely affect or compromise the delivery of health care in underserved areas of the state. The submission of a complete waiver application does not ensure that the DPHS, RHPC will recommend a waiver.  In all instances, the DPHS, RHPC reserves the right to recommend or decline any waiver application.

Special Notes: For available flex spots the facility or sponsoring immigration attorney should contact the Primary Care Workforce Program Assistant by e-mail at: Janine.Wainwright@dhhs.state.nh.us. Flex spots will require additional documentation. This information is available on New Hampshire's J1 Waiver website: http://www.dhhs.nh.gov/dphs/bchs/rhpc/visa.html.

The facility requesting a J-1 physician must have in place a sliding-fee-schedule based on the current U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Federal Poverty Guidelines. The physician, prior to employment, must meet all medical licensure requirements for the State of New Hampshire and must include a copy of his/her license from the NH Medical Licensing Board before the application is approved and sent to the DOS. State of New Hampshire does not maintain a list of vacancies specifically for J1 Visa physicians or provide placement services. You may find job openings in New Hampshire in a variety of ways. You may wish to visit National Rural Recruitment and Retention Network: www.3rnet.org or Bi- State Recruitment Center: http://www.bistaterecruitmentcenter.org.
