Institutional Policy on Visa Status

J1 Visas

The institution sponsors J1 Visas through ECFMG for applicants who are eligible for appointment to a residency or fellowship position.

H1B Visas

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.


Virtual Interviewing

Consistent with recommendations from the AAMC and the ACGME, UMass Chan Medical School-Baystate GME programs will conduct interviews virtually for all applicants.
