INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:

  • “The American medical education system attracts top international talent and produces the best-trained graduates in the world,” said Congressman Brad Schneider. “It makes no sense and is, in fact, irresponsible to force these highly-skilled new doctors out of the country at a time when many of our communities struggle to meet the demand for qualified physicians. Extending the Conrad 30 visa waiver program is a commonsense step that both parties can support to help more Americans have access to quality health care practitioners in their communities.” (Source.
