The Missouri Conrad 30 J-1 Visa Waiver Program offers a J-1 Visa waiver to foreign physicians who commit to serving for 3 years in an underserved area of Missouri, waiving the foreign medical residency requirement and allowing them to remain in the United States. The program is intended to provide physician services in areas which typically have difficulty attracting and retaining physicians.


Priority will be given to primary care physicians in the areas of:

  • Family medicine
  • General pediatrics
  • General obstetrics/gynecology
  • General internal medicine

Waivers may be recommended for other specialties if vacant slots are available in federally designated Health Professional Shortage Areas, Medically Underserved Areas, or Medically Underserved Populations.
