The annual series provides a unique comprehensive educational opportunity for foreign physicians undertaking graduate medical training in the U.S. and residency program directors and coordinators who manage medical training programs at teaching institutions throughout the country to learn about the complex physician immigration process.
This year's events will take place in New York on August 8, Chicago on September 19, and Baltimore on October 24.
