General Field: Medicine

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Resident Physician

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: April 9th, 2018

Processing Time: 18 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

With an MBBS and extensive experience working in the field of medicine, our client seemed like a good candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Before agreeing to take on his case, we carefully went through his credentials to be sure that he met at least 3 out of the 10 EB1A requirements. After confirming that he did, we countersigned the agreement and started gathering a wealth of information related to his work on immune and inflammatory response. By the time it was time to file the case, we had put together a customized EB1A petition that highlighted our client’s various achievements in the field. These are some of the key points which we incorporated into the petition dossier:

  1. Recommendation Letters: Our client had obtained recommendation letters from six different medical experts. These letters advocated for the approval of our client’s petition and supported our argument that he should be allowed to continue his research in the United States. According to one of our client’s recommenders: “[Client’s] work is vital to medicine around the world.” Another recommender declared that he is “among the most productive and impactful medical researchers today…”
  2. Citation Count: We used Google Scholar to confirm the number of times our client’s work had been cited—191 times by dependent and independent researchers.
  3. Publication Record: At the time of filing, our client had already published 9 scientific articles, an exemplary record compared to that of his peers in the field of medicine.
  4. Peer Review Experience: We demonstrated that our client is a respected member of the scientific community by including information on the 14 times he assessed the work of his peers for various scientific journals.

Thanks to premium processing, our client received notification of case approval merely 10 days after we filed the personalized EB1A petition on his behalf. The approval of this EB1A petition is yet another example of our sterling record in helping our clients attain I-140 approval (we have over 10,000 approved cases in the bag). We congratulate our client for coming this far in the green card process and we wish him the best as he continues to advance the important field of medicine.
