HLG Teleconference for Clients: Practice Advisory: PTs OTs and the Masters degree

Rate this Entry



HLG is scheduling a free teleconference for all clients FRIDAY FEBRUARY 27, 2009 AT 3:30 PM ET / 12:30 PT. All clients of the firm who petition for Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists are strongly encouraged to register for this call.


To register for the call please send an email to Mary Clark-Banschbach.


In the last week or two there have been a rash of RFEs issued on PT H-1 cases. The USCIS has reached a determination that the US' standard for entry into the PT occupation is a Masters degree. This is inconsistent with most state's licensing board's determinations. Moreover, many states' credentialing agencies have determined that most internationally-educated PTs and OTs degrees are equivalent to a Masters degree. HLG is working with AILA to educate the USCIS on this issue.


The purpose of the call is to provide information to HLG clients about the issue and to discuss the various options that we have with 5 weeks remaining until H-1 cases must be filed.
