Case Summary:

The following is the list of items collected for the National Interest Waiver application of an Indian pulmonary and critical care fellow in pulmonary medicine:

  • Armed with an M.D. in pulmonary medicine, she was working as a critical care fellow at the time of her application with us.
  • As an expert in the field, her proposed endeavor was to work on characterizing lung disease processes in order to develop protocols to treat them in hospital and clinical settings.
  • Her research advancing her proposed endeavor was of great importance because it immediately impacts the millions of global citizens who have been diagnosed with either lung cancer or acute myeloid leukemia.
  • Her proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States since two major lung-related concerns currently impacting the American people are COVID-19 and the excessive use of electronic cigarettes. Fortunately, she has provided a blueprint for clinicians who are met with these unique lung complications associated with both COVID-19 and e-cigarette usage, laying the groundwork for effective treatment strategies.
  • This is why one of her 2 recommenders wrote:

“[The client] is actively protecting vulnerable members of our society by studying these complications in order to more accurately anticipate complications and therefore effectively treat them. Her contributions make her an asset to the American healthcare industry.”

  • She has also been invited to conduct peer reviews for multiple journals and has completed at least 3 reviews to date.
  • Her research has resulted in 15 peer-reviewed journal articles (6 of them first-authored). And these publications have been cited a total of 125 times according to Google Scholar.
  • She has also pursued research directly related to her proposed endeavor of characterizing lung disease processes in order to develop protocols to treat them in hospitals and clinical settings in clinical settings for 8 years.

All of these factors were woven into her petition and presented before the adjudicating authorities at the USCIS. Soon with the help of premium processing, she obtained her approval. We are grateful to her for working with our team and we wish her the best in her future endeavors.
