We are currently reviewing applicants seeking J-1 Visa Waivers for all primary care (Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Ob/GYN, and Pediatric) positions. We are posting a limited number of non-primary care positions, with waiver availability subject to community need and at discretion of our J-1 Visa Waiver liaison, Mark Jordan.
Typically we do not post for sub-specialties (i.e., neonatology, pediatric cardiology, etc). Please use your other resources for information about these non-rural jobs in South Carolina. If you locate an opportunity of interest, please contact Mark Jordan to inquire about waiver availability.
Physicians on J-1 Visas, please contact Mark Jordan to verify the availability of positions and assistance with waivers.
Important Note: South Carolina does not have a J-1 deadline for applications, though the sooner they may be in process, the better. Go to the South Carolina Office of Primary Care J-1 Page for more information.
