Healthcare Immigration Strategies: New Mexico Health Resources is pleased to announce a new webinar series aimed at supporting New Mexico healthcare institutions’ ongoing efforts to recruit and retain healthcare providers through the immigration of talented foreign national candidates.
In this era of severe shortages and major challenges in recruiting physicians, dentists, and allied healthcare providers, employers need to update constantly their recruitment toolbox, particularly when recruiting for difficult-to-fill placements. One of the major sources of healthcare providers is foreign nationals. Employers can be resistant to grappling with the uncertainties and complexities of the U.S. immigration system. However, our immigration laws are recognizing the high benefits that international healthcare providers bring to U.S. patients, and there are even immigration legal provisions that, when properly understood and invoked, give employers a competitive advantage in both recruiting and retaining foreign healthcare workers. In a sense, immigration is getting a facelift under the Biden Administration, and many employers within the state will benefit from getting either a refresher or a crash course in how immigration can best support your recruitment program.
This two-part webinar series will cover immigration options and strategies for healthcare organizations and their team members as a means of recruitment and long-term retention of talented candidates. The first webinar will cover the life cycle of an International Medical Graduate physician’s immigration process, from education and waivers (Conrad, HHS, etc.) to employment status and permanent residence (PNIW, PERM, etc.). The second webinar will detail the process for dentists and allied healthcare professionals from nonimmigrant employment authorization through permanent residence. Both presentations will focus on strategies healthcare institutions can use to gain a competitive edge in recruitment, increase the diversity of their workforce, and attract top talent.
We are very pleased to announce that this program will be conducted by two nationally prominent immigration attorneys who are long-time friends and supporters of the New Mexico Health Resources: Robert Aronson and Matthew Webster. They will be delivering an informative, fast-paced, and entertaining presentation that will provide timely and useful information of direct relevance to various healthcare recruitment scenarios.
