H1B Visas

The availability of the institution to support H1B Visas is very limited and not generally available; however, upon request from the Program Director and under exceptional circumstances, the Chief Academic Officer and DIO of Academic Affairs will review H1B applications on a case-by-case basis.

Consistent with recommendations from the AAMC and the ACGME, UMMS-Baystate GME programs will conduct interviews virtually for all applicants. The chosen platform is Thalamus.

We are developing the process as well as the schedule for the 2020-2021 interview season, and updates will be published when available.
