  • Recommended and obtained changes adopted into Oregon Health Authority’s application form for J-1 waiver physicians
  • Located errors and obtained correction of legal citations in Oregon Health Authority’s long-standing J-1 waiver approval recommendation letters issued to DOS
  • Recommended and drafted Oregon Health Authority’s template for Physician NIW attestations
  • Responsible for a change to Oregon Administrative Rules making an exception/waiver to state mandated percentage of Medicaid patient visits under certain circumstances
  • Numerous other changes adopted into the Oregon Administrative Rules pertaining to the “Oregon Physician Visa Waiver Program” (OAR 409-035)
  • Monitoring of Oregon’s Conrad 30 J-1 waiver program and availability of slots as it reacts to the state’s growth of foreign/international medical graduate population
