US increases job quotas for foreign medicos

From : Samir T. Kumar

Dear Sir/Madam,

Your snippet regarding increase in jobs for foreign medicos in the USA was somewhat misleading. While the "State 20" or "Conrad 20" program did increase it's positions to 30 jobs a year, the much larger program through the US Dept of Agriculture was shut down.

As a result, Foreign doctors who entered the US on an exchange visitor (J-1) visa actually now have far less opportunities to find employment in the United States by obtaining a waiver, despite the State 20 increase.
