Ohio J-1 Visa Waiver Program
The Ohio State 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 Ohio, 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 that typically
have difficulty attracting and retaining physicians.
Primary care physicians, psychiatrists, and sub-specialty trained physicians are eligible to apply.
This is an incentive program that offers foreign physicians a visa waiver, allowing them to work in the U.S.
Completed applications should be mailed to:
Ohio Department of Health
Primary Care Office
Attn: J-1 Visa Waiver Program
246 N High Street, 7th Floor
Columbus, Ohio 43215
Applications for primary care and behavioral health placements will be accepted until June 30, 2018. All other applications must be postmarked by March 31, 2018. Descriptions of program priorities are provided on the program website.
