IMMIGRATION/VISA REQUIREMENTS:

The Graduate Medical Education Resident and Fellow Handbook states the following:

In order for an international medical graduate (IMG) to hold a Michigan medical license and to train at Beaumont, he/she must qualify for and obtain a visa appropriate to his/her personal circumstances of foreign training and citizenship.  Visas currently accepted at Beaumont are:

  1. OPT: A one-year student visa.  During the OPT-allowed academic year, a resident holding an OPT visa must obtain an H-1B visa in order to continue his/her education at Beaumont.
  2. J-1 Visa: sponsored by the ECFMG.  Residents are solely responsible for all costs incurred in obtaining a J-1 vsa and for keeping it current.
  3. H-1B Visa: sponsored by Beaumont hospitals, depending on nationally-determined availability.  All attorney fees are paid by Beaumont, with the exception of premium processing.  In order to qualify for an H-1B visa, USMLE Step III must have been taken and passed.

Immigration laws are detailed, exacting, complicated, and ever-changing.  For this reason, Beaumont has engaged an immigration law firm to handle all visa activities and questions confronted by the hospital and its residents.  All Beaumont-sponsored H-1B visa applications, renewals, and modifications must be handled by Beaumont's consultant attorneys.  Residents may engage immigration law attorneys of their choice for all other visa issues, but the hospital reserves the right to require its attorneys to review and approve all outside legal work pertinent to visas.
