A J-1 Visa Waiver waives the two year home residency requirement and allows a physician to stay in the country to practice in a federally designated Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) or Medically Underserved Area (MUA) if sponsored by an interested U.S. government agency. State government agencies may also sponsor J-1 physician waiver requests which are called Conrad State 30 programs.


I have a question based on above statement ,which is from a relaible source :
Can you count 3 years of residency program towards waiver if your residency program is located in medically underserved area?

Any expert opinions are welcome........

No - residency is educational.
