Nevada can support up to 30 slots per year for the J-1 Visa (Conrad 30 Waiver) Program. Applications are accepted throughout the year, beginning October 1 of each year. The 2015 State Physician Workforce Data Book ranks Nevada eighth in the nation for the percentage of International Medical Graduates active in our state, reflecting our welcoming environment for diverse practice.
The program is open to both primary care physicians and specialists. Nevada accepts health care sites in designated areas and non-designated areas (“flex slots”) as long as the sites serve an underserved population.
