International Medical Graduates
The UW ObGyn Residency Program accepts foreign national physicians who meet UW Eligibility and Selection requirements into its accredited residency program. Foreign nationals requiring visa sponsorship must obtain a J-1 visa sponsored by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates - ECFMG – www.ecfmg.org. [The J-1, or Exchange Visitor visa, is intended for educational purposes and allows residents to participate in temporary educational exchange programs. It stipulates that a holder of the visa will return to his/her home country following completion of the program. The UW GME office supports and administers J-1 visa applications with sponsorship by the ECFMG for residents and fellows). The UW does not generally provide H-1B sponsorship for residents in its clinical training programs unless the resident is otherwise ineligible for a J-1 visa. Requests for H-1B visa sponsorship are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are subject to approval by the UW GME office and the UW Provost’s office. There is no US clinical experience requirement, and no requirements as far as date-of-graduation.
Applicant interviews are conducted on the last Monday in October (Oct 29); most Mondays in November (Nov 5, 19, & 26); and two Mondays in mid-December (Dec 10 & 17). The interviewing committee consists of the department chairman; the residency program director; the residency program assistant director; faculty representatives from the various divisions; ObGyn family- and patient-centered care representatives; and a team of two residents.
