Institutional Policy on Visa Status
The institution sponsors J1 Visas through ECFMG for applicants who are eligible for appointment to a residency or fellowship position.
The availability of the institution to support H1B Visas is very limited and not generally available. However, upon request from a Program Director and under exceptional circumstances, the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs at Baystate Health will review H1B applications on a case by case basis.
Consistent with recommendations from the AAMC and the ACGME, UMass Chan Medical School-Baystate GME programs will conduct interviews virtually for all applicants.
Please feel free to call us at 413-773-2244 with any questions you may have.
