Now in its third edition, authors Greg Siskind and Elissa Taub provide the most up-to-date information regarding immigration for foreign physicians. Physician immigration is perhaps the most complicated area of U.S. immigration law, but The Physician Immigration Handbook, 3rd Edition, simplifies that process in a way that is easy to follow and understand. The Handbook explains what foreign physicians need to know to apply for graduate medical training at American teaching hospitals in the United States and how they can remain in the United States to pursue their careers. The Physician Immigration Handbook follows the typical American journey for the international medical graduate (IMG). First, the Handbook reviews the application process through which physicians receive ECFMG certification, eventually leading to admittance to U.S. graduate medical training programs. Then it discusses the two major immigration pathways open to IMGs who want to come to the United States for graduate medical training: the J-1 visa and the H-1B visa. The Handbook walks the IMG through training to post-training work, then on to permanent residency (the "green card" process) and ultimately to U.S. citizenship. It even delves into employment issues, such as layoffs, mergers, and acquisitions, while also discussing special benefits available to foreign physicians in the U.S. military. The Physician Immigration Handbook was written as a guide for IMGs, recruiters, human resource professionals, and even government officials who need to know how the U.S. immigration system works and the special rules applied to physicians within that framework. The Handbook includes 25 chapters in an easy-to-follow, question-and-answer format: --Qualifying for Graduate Medical Training in the United States --The J-1 and the H-1B Visas --Seeking a Visitor Visa to Pursue Graduate Medical Training --J-1 Visas for Graduate Medical Training --The J-1 Home-Residency Requirement --Conrad 30 Waivers --'Public Interest' Waivers --Hardship and Persecution Waivers --J-2 Status for Family Members of a J-1 Exchange Visitor --The H-1B Visa Process --Cap-Exemption Strategies for the H-1B Visa --H-4 Family Members Accompanying an H-1B Visa Holder --Consular Processing of Nonimmigrant Visas --Lawful Permanent Residency --Obtaining Permanent Residency Through PERM Labor Certification --National Interest Waivers --Other Paths to Achieving Permanent Residency --Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest --Obtaining U.S. Citizenship --The Impact of Employment Termination --The Impact of Mergers and Acquisitions --Immigration and the Locum Tenens --The Role of Physician Recruiters --Special Issues Affecting Canadian Physicians --Hiring an Immigration Attorney. The Handbook also includes numerous helpful appendices and charts, plus sample questionnaires: Resources and Websites of Interest; Physician Licensing Requirements by State; Physician National Interest Waiver Chart; Preliminary Immigration Questionnaires for Physicians and Physician Employers; J-1 Interested Government Agency Physician Waiver Flowchart; Flowchart for Physicians on Training H-1Bs; Conrad 30 State Chart.

The Oxford Handbook of U.S. Health Law covers the breadth and depth of health law, with contributions from the most eminent scholars in the field. The Handbook paints with broad thematic strokes the major features of American healthcare law and policy, its recent reforms including the Affordable Care Act, its relationship to medical ethics and constitutional principles, and how it compares to the experience of other countries. It explores the legal framework for the patient experience, from access through treatment, to recourse (if treatment fails), and examines emerging issues involving healthcare information, the changing nature of healthcare regulation, immigration, globalization, aging, and the social determinants of health. This Handbook provides valuable content, accessible to readers new to the subject, as well as to those who write, teach, practice, or make policy in health law.

This handbook explores the topic of death and dying from the late twentieth to the early twenty-first centuries, with particular emphasis on the United States. In this period, technology has radically changed medical practices and the way we die as structures of power have been reshaped by the rights claims of African Americans, women, gays, students, and, most relevant here, patients. Respecting patients' values has been recognized as the essential moral component of clinical decision-making. Technology's promise has been seen to have a dark side: it prolongs the dying process. For the first time in history, human beings have the ability control the timing of death. With this ability comes a responsibility that is awesome and inescapable. How we understand and manage this responsibility is the theme of this volume. The book comprises six sections. Section I examines how the law has helped shape clinical practice, emphasizing the roles of rights and patient autonomy. Section II focuses on specific clinical issues, including death and dying in children, continuous sedation as a way to relieve suffering at the end of life, and the problem of prognostication in patients who are thought to be dying. Section III considers psychosocial and cultural issues. Section IV discusses death and dying among various vulnerable populations such as the elderly and persons with disabilities. Section V deals with physician-assisted suicide and active euthanasia (lethal injection). Finally, Section VI looks at hospice and palliative care as a way to address the psychosocial and ethical problems of death and dying.

Today he is known as Dr. Q, an internationally renowned neurosurgeon and neuroscientist who leads cutting-edge research to cure brain cancer. But not too long ago, he was Freddy, a nineteen-year-old undocumented migrant worker toiling in the tomato fields of central California. In this gripping memoir, Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa tells his amazing life story—from his impoverished childhood in the tiny village of Palaco, Mexico, to his harrowing border crossing and his transformation from illegal immigrant to American citizen and gifted student at the University of California at Berkeley and at Harvard Medical School. Packed with adventure and adversity—including a few terrifying brushes with death—Becoming Dr. Q is a testament to persistence, hard work, the power of hope and imagination, and the pursuit of excellence. It’s also a story about the importance of family, of mentors, and of giving people a chance.
