    A clinical J-1 visa is required for admission to UC Davis Health residency and fellowship training programs. The visa can only be sponsored by ECFMG, which requires passage of USMLE Steps 1 and 2. Applicants on a J-1 with a waiver from the Department of State (DOS) can only be accepted into our programs on an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) or J-1 visa Physician Program.
