STSC 2023 Virtual Fair Resources:

Additionally, for International Candidates, according to the 2023 Post-MedPhys Match Survey, most international candidates indicated that the need of a visa limited their choice of programs, and it is difficult to find information on if or how programs provided Visa assistantships. Therefore, the STSC Residency Fair team gathered the Visa assistance types (F1-OPT, H1B, J1, TN, and No Assistance) from all participating programs shown in Program Information 2023-24 available in the STSC 2023 Residency Fair Resource Drive. There will be a special STSC Visa Information Session on Friday, September 8th from 12-1PM EST to address general questions and concerns for international candidates in the Virtual Residency Fair from a student and trainee perspective. Please fill out the survey (International Candidates Visa Questions/Concerns) if you have any thoughts or questions about the topic.
