Advantages of Hiring Visa Candidates

  • These physicians are more likely to be trained in needed primary care specialties like family medicine, internal medicine and psychiatry.

  • Many must commit to work with an employer for three to five years to satisfy immigration requirements.

  • Survey data shows these physicians are more likely to relocate for a job than U.S. citizen physicians.

  • Many have exceptional credentials. Not only have they excelled at residency or fellowship training in the U.S., they often have extensive experience and training in their home countries.

  • We are working with visa candidates who are scheduling interviews now.

It’s been quite a Monday already, thanks for thinking of me! I don’t know what the “secret sauce” is at SJA, but all of you should bottle and sell it! I have shared with Caryl countless times, how it is an absolute joy to work with you. If I need additional muscle on a challenge, SJA is my first call! To those I have referred to our client hospitals for community-based recruitment support, thanks for making me shine a little brighter…they brag about their “SJA experience” too! If I am ever in town, I am stopping by…count on it! Have an amazing week and thanks again for the “pick me up!”

I have worked with St. John Associates for well over 18 years. In this time period, they have placed me twice successfully. I have worked with two very competent individuals over these years. They have also helped me recruit cardiologists to my practices over the years.

The current specialist that I still work with for my practice has always been responsible, available, affable and effective.

I highly recommend St. John Associates for any physician’s or organization’s placement needs.
