Default Physicians To Benefit From H-1B Slowdown

Do you have the mistaken assumption that H-1B visas are strictly the province of computer professionals? In reality, almost half of H-1B visas are utilized by health care and education professionals. This year's minimal H-1B usage is a boon to physicians finishing their medical residencies and fellowships. Why? Because, unlike last year when the H-1B cap was reached in the first week of the program, this year only 42,000 H-1B petitions were submitted toward the 65,000 cap. What's more, employers submitted a mere 1,000 petitions in the second week and another 1,000 during the third week. At this rate, the...

Default H1B number updates

Just a correction on your statistics. USCIS has notified that they have so far received 44000 (not 42000 as you mentioned, since then) in their April 20th Memo. There are around 21000 slots still available to reach the cap... interesting to observe how the demand has dropped...
Here's the link to memo.

The demand dropped because USCIS started enforcing the rules during the H1B petition.
They are asking for projects prior to approval. Ability to pay. Is there any benching etc.

And USCIS still thinks not all cases may be approvable - which means, they will go strict on approving.

If you are in a valid job and with a decent company - then you don't have to worry.

If you are in a "Mom and Pop shop" then it may get difficult.

Actually it was needed since a long time. The benching and other employer abuse of the
system was getting out of control like the Brachero program that was eventually shut down in the 60s.

I donít think it will make much of a difference, because most of the hospitals giving H1 in US are non profitable organizations and non profitable organizations do not come under the H1 cap.

Well - group practices do exist and they will now be able to hire using H1b. A lot of groups advertise for jobs but unable to hire h1b candidates because most of the h1b who finish residencies or felowships are from non profits.

If the quota does not get depleted - these groups and other for profit organizations will start hiring h1b candidates also.

They may not realise now, but as they start understanding that h1b quota is available, then they will start hiring.

Basically - what I intend to say is - those who say h1b visa quota can never get over - may not be true. Preventing IT consulting companies from applying for h1b visa will result in distribution of h1b visas to various people
