Louisiana Conrad State 30 (J-1 visa waiver) Program

About the Louisiana Conrad State 30 (J-1 visa waiver) Program
The purpose of the Louisiana Conrad State 30 (J-1 Visa Waiver) Program is to recruit needed primary care and specialty physicians, both allopathic and osteopathic, into federally-designated health professional shortage areas (HPSAs). Physicians should apply to the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) for a predetermination of eligibility and also a letter of support for the placement of a J-1 visa waiver. LDH will support the physician's request for a waiver through the Louisiana Conrad State 30 program, once all of the following criteria are met.
