Application information for foreign medical graduates
To confirm your eligibility to apply for a Transplant Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin, clarification of citizenship, permanent residency in the U.S., or visa status is required. The University of Wisconsin does not sponsor clinical J visas for fellows. Therefore, foreign medical graduates who apply must be eligible for an H visa or have obtained a J waiver to be considered for a position at the University of Wisconsin.
Transplant fellows at the University of Wisconsin hold the academic appointment of Clinical Instructor in Surgery. Therefore, all applicants must also be U.S. Board eligible, as fellows are required to bill for some services.
To be Board eligible and able to bill for services, applicants must have five years of residency training in the United States.
If you are eligible to apply for this fellowship based on U.S. citizenship, permanent residency or visa status, as well as Board eligibility, you may apply using the Application link.
