When a foreign physician uses a J-1 Cultural Exchange Visa to attend a residency or fellowship, a law known as the Immigration and Nationality Act § 212(e) requires them to return home in order to share their newly acquired skills with residence of their home country. The 212(e) requirement can be “waived” if the physician is sponsored by a medical facility located in an underserved area of the U.S.
