Improving access to primary health care, and needed specialty care, in medically underserved areas is an important goal of the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). The purpose of the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Conrad 30 Waiver Program is to increase access by sponsoring J-1 Physicians who agree to serve in medically underserved areas of the Commonwealth to waive the “two-year home country physical presence requirement,” which would otherwise be required.
