Garfinkel Immigration Law Firm Partners Meredith W. Barnette and Colleen F. Molner are launching a new webinar series.
The series, entitled “Immigration Solutions for Healthcare Workers,” is intended for foreign nationals in the healthcare industry including physicians, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, technicians, clinicians, healthcare IT specialists as well as healthcare HR professionals and managers.
The first webinar will be held virtually on Wednesday, May 3, from noon – 1 p.m. and is entitled “Getting in the Door:” Short-term Visa Options for Healthcare Workers. The Partners’ presentation will look closely at creative strategies for qualified foreign national healthcare workers in the U.S., including J-1, H-1B, O-1, TN and more nonimmigrant work visa options.
“Our healthcare industry is in significant need of healthcare workers, and the recent pandemic has only magnified that need,” Molner said. “This webinar will examine a wide range of work visa options that could allow qualified professionals to fill these open positions.”
