Tuesday, January 29th at 2 PM EST 

Recruiting foreign physicians can be very complex. Join attorney Heather Sivaraman as she answers your questions on important aspects of recruiting the growing number of international candidates and provides updates on changes in federal immigration law and policy. International Medical Graduates (IMGs) now comprise more than 25% of the physician population in the United States and represent a growing source of excellent candidates for physician recruiters. However, recruitment of IMGs can be daunting. Experienced recruiters understand the basic implications of visa status. However, a lack of up-to-date knowledge of the obligations in hiring IMGs leads some recruiters to shy away from good candidates. Topics will include current federal law and policy regarding contract requirements, obligations, and fee payment. Attendees will gain confidence in their ability to identify key issues when recruiting IMGs and will also learn some of the advantages of working with this growing population of potential candidates.
