On September 9th, 2019, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Resident Physician in the Field of Internal Medicine (Approval Notice).

General Field: Internal Medicine

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Resident Physician

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Pennsylvania

Approval Notice Date: September 9th, 2019

Processing Time: 6 months, 13 days

Case Summary:

A resident physician in internal medicine hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. With a M.D. and extensive research experience focusing on oncology and infectious diseases as well as healthcare economics, our client had suitable credentials to qualify for the National Interest Waiver.

As we have helped 15,000 clients get closer to their green card dreams, we undoubtedly have unprecedented insight into building winning petitions. The approval of our client’s NIW petition proves that one size does not fit all, and that it is crucial to customize I-140 petition dossiers according to each individual’s strengths.

Among other things, we paid special attention to our client’s publication record and citation count. At the time we filed his case, his 30 peer-reviewed journal articles (10 of them first-authored) has been cited 225 times. Moreover, we worked diligently to prove that our client’s work holds significant implications for addressing antimicrobial resistant pathogens and improving cancer treatments in the United States.

In our bid to present an airtight EB-2 NIW case to the USCIS, we urged our client to ask his peers to sign strong recommendation letters. Four prominent experts in the field agreed to lend their support. One of the recommenders had attested to our client’s efforts by stating: “Pharmaceutical drug shortages are one of the overlooked impediments to better health care for people all over the world (…) These shortages also incur higher economic costs in the form of replacement medication and the labor costs associated with more intensive medical care. Countries around the world desire to prevent these shortages before they occur, and [Client]’s work provides the information needed for governments and pharmaceutical manufacturers to create the right policies”.

Not only did we demonstrate that our client’s findings greatly benefit the field of internal medicine, we also emphasized that his work is of great importance to the country as a whole since his specialized research has focused on epidemiological studies of drug-resistant pathogens in high-risk patient populations, allowing public health officials and clinicians aware of the need for better antimicrobial stewardship and alternative classes of antibiotics. We successfully convinced the USCIS that his research has provided fresh insights into the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functional changes of cancer patients, enabling doctors to make timelier interventions and administer more precise tests.

As a result of our thorough efforts coupled with our client’s strong credentials, he is now one step closer to his green card. We congratulate him for obtaining NIW approval, and we thank him for also retaining our law firm for the last step of the green card process: filing an I-485.
