Success Stories: A Graduate Student Researching in the Field of Translational Orthopedics Secures EB1-A Approval in Just 3 Days, Special Thanks to the Expedited Service


Client’s Testimonial:

“Really appreciate your help. I did not expect the absolutely not strong case would be approved. I’ve already started to think of how to responded to RFE. It is beyond my expectations and I cannot express how excited I am right now. Thank you!”

On October 26th, 2023, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Graduate Student in the Field of Translational Orthopedics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Translational Orthopedics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Graduate Student

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: October 26th, 2023

Processing Time: 3 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Our Chinese client is a highly qualified physician-scientist with advanced degrees in clinical medicine and materials science. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in medicine and a doctorate in philosophy in orthopedics. It is reasonable to predict that he will continue to make substantial contributions to the field of translational orthopedics within the United States given his unique and extensive knowledge. Supporting letters from other experts in the field go into additional detail about the significance of his background and accomplishments in his field.

Out of 5 submitted recommendation letters, one had the following excerpt:

“The totality of [client’s]contributions, coupled with the applications of his work in expending the repository of available nanomedicines and therapeutic compounds for the treatment of life-threatening diseases such as bone cancers, unequivocally emphasizes the continued support of his translational orthopedics work is undoubtedly well-suited to furthering the healthcare goals of the United States.”

Therefore, when our esteemed client hired the North America Immigration Law Group to help him file an EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. We agreed to lay out a strong petition package with his impressive record of merits, and his unique knowledge relevant to his current and future work, our legal team also assisted him in compiling documentation of some of his work’s international acclaim, and achievements that have been recognized in the field through implementation by others and extensive citation of his work.

Thus, we put together a potential strategy for his EB1A case and listed the following information:

  • We noted his active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field i.e. he has conducted 17 peer reviews to date.
  • Apart from making direct progress in his field of expertise, which is statistical research on orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation, he has also published 26 peer-reviewed scientific articles in international journals. His work has also drawn a large audience and has been cited 407 times by peers who have used his earlier research to locate new information relevant to their studies in at least 42 countries.
  • Moreover, his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including expanding and developing more targeted treatment options for bone disease and cancer patients thus improving their quality of life and easing the healthcare burden caused by the aging population.
  • To boost the aforementioned, we incorporated evidence of him receiving funding support from several federal organizations, determining that he seeks to enter the United States to continue work in the area of extraordinary ability, and his entry to the United States will substantially benefit prospectively.

With the assistance of our client, our attorneys and team members effectively gathered all of the documentation required to file an EB-1A petition. Therefore, in October 2023, we filed his EB-1A petition to the USCIS, and in just 3 days, we received his EB-1A case approval. We were extremely happy to have saved our client from having to file for a conventional employment-based immigrant petition, which required a labor certification and a permanent work offer. He was just as ecstatic, and we wish him luck in his future pursuits in the field of translational orthopedics.
