International Applicants

All applicants must be in status with the Department of Homeland Security prior to the date of the rank order is submitted to the NRMP or prior to position being offered. International applicants that require work authorization in order to participate in the Billings Clinic residency program are expected to receive that authorization through a J-1 visa sponsored by ECFMG. Once accepted into the program, Billings Clinic will work with ECFMG as required to facilitate issuance of the required authorization. We expect that J1 Visa application be made immediately after Match Day to ensure a July start date as required by your NRMP agreement. The program does not sponsor H1B visas.
