Healthcare Immigration Seminar - Deadline Is Tuesday, April 27th

This month will feature our third healthcare seminar in as many years with William Stock of Klasko, Rulon, Stock and Seltzer, LLP (formerly the immigration group within Dechert). This seminar series will cover cutting-edge issues and the latest developments in physician issues (IVs and NIVs), nurse issues, and issues connected to other healthcare professionals. Previous participants for our healthcare seminars have remarked on the exceptional value they received for their time and money (about 75% of our seminar customers are repeat customers). The distinguished practitioners joining the panels include Sylvia Boecker, Matthew S. Dunn, Elahe Najfabadi, Suzanne Seltzer, and Greg Siskind (several other speakers to be announced, including experts in state licensing matters). The seminar is offered by phone, so law offices around the country can participate. It is also a great training tool for the entire law firm staff (one registration covers everyone sharing a speakerphone). The seminar includes an in-depth Q&A period where you can pose questions regarding your cases to the distinguished practitioners on the panel. The deadline to register is Tuesday, April 27th. For more info, including detailed curriculum, speaker bios, and registration information, see: http://www.ilw.com/seminars/april2004.shtm. (Fax version: http://www.ilw.com/seminars/april2004.pdf.)


ILW.COM Focus

Healthcare Immigration Seminar

Healthcare immigration is probably the hottest area of immigration law practice today. Immigration attorneys confront three distinct sets of issues when advising healthcare industry clients.

  • NIV and IV issues affecting doctors
  • Issues affecting nurses and other healthcare professionals
  • State licensing issues for the health professions
Special Note On Session Three: In order to receive an immigration benefit based on an offer of employment in a health care profession, a foreign national must be sure to comply with all requirements in the state of intended employment in order to be eligible for a license to practice their profession. Because licensing issues can cause problems and delays in obtaining immigration benefits, immigration attorneys counseling foreign nationals in the health care professions need to be aware not only of the requirements for licensing of various occupations in each state, but also of the concerns that licensing authorities have with foreign-educated health care workers. We expect this session to involve speakers from state licensing boards, who will review issues in licensing of foreign-educated health care workers and help practitioners avoid common pitfalls in licensing of foreign nationals that turn into major issues in immigration cases.

Our new seminar "Doctors, Nurses And Other Health Professionals: Current Immigration Issues" features distinguished practitioners Sylvia Boecker, Matthew S. Dunn, Elahe Najfabadi, Suzanne Seltzer, Greg Siskind as speakers with William A. Stock leading the discussion (other speakers to be announced, experts in state licensing matters will join the final session).

The seminar is offered by phone, so law offices around the country can participate. It is also a great training tool for the entire law firm staff (one registration covers everyone sharing a speakerphone).
