    EM non-ACGME accredited fellowship on J1 visa

    Advertisements



    Hi all,

    Is there anyone who has done a non-accredited fellowship such as ultrasound , international EM, and critical care on J1 visa? I'm wondering if J1 visa doesn't allow you to be taking clinical shifts at ED. Most EM fellowships do this to get fellows paid.

    I appreciate it if anyone has any comment. Thanks in advance!

    are you from Canada?

    You would need to check with your province in order to ensure that they would support that kind of training on the J1, typically, they have a list of residencies and specialties that they will support (because the idea behind it is to go back to Canada to practice there after your training in something they require).

    I haven't heard of it being done, but that doesn't mean that it wouldn't happen for you...

    Dear kananaski girls

    Thank you for your comment! I'm not from Canada, but I appreciate your input.

    There are very few EM residents who were IMGs, which makes it hard to see how we can go on fellowships. I will keep working on it.
