Case Summary:

For this EB1-B case, our client is a clinical associate professor in the field of epidemiology. His research is primarily focused on dental medicine and healthcare outcomes in hospitals. He has investigated the complications, adverse events, medical errors, hospital bills, lengths of stay following hospitalization, and number of emergency department visits attributed to dental care in the United States. In this case, the petitioner is a major national research university with one of the nation’s most advanced and comprehensive university-owned hospitals, and is a qualifying petitioner with the ability to pay. The petitioner currently employs around 1,700 tenured-track academic faculty members and there are about 13,000 staff working at the university. To prove that our client was internationally recognized in his research, we highlighted his research work, which resulted in at least 11 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 13 conference proceedings, and one book. Furthermore, his publications have been cited at least 21 times by researchers around the world. In addition to this client’s academic successes, we had to supply further evidence to meet the standards set by the law. We did this by obtaining the highest quality of recommendation letters from both this client’s current colleagues as well as unaffiliated researchers in this client’s field of study. His expertise can be seen in this quote by an independent recommender, “Although [the Beneficiary’s] studies generate data representative of the United States in particular, his research has transcended boundaries all over the world.” Our client’s case was approved in just 19 days.
