Welcome to the 1,000 Islands and the St. Lawrence Seaway!

Here Ontario and the United States meet... their cultures blending in the waters of the mighty St. Lawrence and Great Lake Ontario. The native peoples called this region the “Garden of the Great Spirit.” Today, many people still remark that this gorgeous garden of woods and waters that is the Thousand Islands is truly one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Others will tell you its friendly atmosphere, fresh outdoors and laid-back pace makes the 1000 Islands a place that inspires the spirit and renews the soul.

J1 Waivers:

The New York State Department of Health sponsors 30 physicians each year for J-1 visa waivers under the New York “State 30” Program. Applications submitted by the deadline (usually late November/early December) are reviewed on a competitive basis with final decisions being made by March. The program does not provide direct recruitment services for J-1 candidates.

This program is open to all specialties.  Candidates must agree to practice, or serve populations residing, in federally designated underserved areas in New York State for three years if granted a waiver and H-1B visa by U.S. Immigration and Citizenship Services.   The Program Information Bulletin and application materials can be found at: http://www.health.ny.gov/professionals/j-1_visa_waivers/.
