capitolA central goal of the IMG taskforce is to educate national and state policy makers, administrative officials, and the American public on the need for fair and reasonable laws that allow international medical graduates to become licensed physicians and to begin or continue their medical careers in the United States. To this end, we develop key relationships with legislators and policy makers in both federal and state government agencies in order to ensure that the needs of international medical graduates are considered in the development of policy and law. Members of the IMG Taskforce lend their unique expertise in physician immigration matters to promote the best interests of international medical graduates in these areas.

The IMG Taskforce has been a major force in the passage of several physician immigration bills over the last few years. Current advocacy efforts seek to address the need for Conrad 30 reauthorization, visa retrogression, the nonimmigrant and immigrant visa caps, and other issues of concern to international medical graduates in the United States.
