For those in certain professional fields, employment-based immigration may be one way to contribute to society while staying in the United States. The professional fields prevalent in Maryland make it the ideal place for those wishing to live and work here on a long-term basis, especially if they are involved in the medical field.

Medical professionals provide immeasurable contributions to the area. There are special exemptions and waivers available for those in the medical field. The medical professionals who qualify include more than just doctors. Those who are nurses, physical therapists and pharmacists are in demand and can pursue certain special immigration statuses and visas.

Hospitals and health care institutions work to find employment opportunities for health professionals from all over the world.

There are specific requirements that must be met on the part of the professionals and the institution with which they wish to work.
