Immigration and Visa Options Session 2023

The MGPA International Postdocs Subcommittee sponsored the highly-anticipated Immigration and Visa Info Session with some added content for International Medical Graduates (IMGs)!

This was an opportunity for non-US citizen MGH Research Fellows or International Medical Graduates to learn more about the process and requirements for USA permanent residence application and other immigration and visa issues.

The event was led by Madeline Cronin, Prasant Desai, and Mary Walsh from Iandoli Desai & Cronin P.C., a U.S. immigration law firm located in the Charlestown Navy Yard. The firm represents businesses, institutions, and individuals on a wide range of U.S. immigration and nationality issues: https://www.iandoli.com/

There was also a representative from the MGB Office for Global Professionals and Scholars, Noel Palatas.
