International medical graduates from India- Earn $50


International medical graduates from India:

Earn $50: Share your experiences of immigration and residency.

If you graduated from medical school in India and are now a resident or licensed physician in California, please

consider participating in a research study on the immigration experiences of Indian medical graduates.

To be eligible, you must be an intern or resident who:

1) was born and raised primarily in India;

2) completed undergraduate medical training in India;

3) immigrated to the US in the past 10 years.

Pending expected funding, all interviewees will be paid $50 for their participation. If you are interested in

participating, please contact the lead investigator, Christine Henneberg, by phone or by email:


In your phone or email message, please leave your name, phone number, and a time when you can be reached.

Participants will be interviewed at their home or place of work (no travel time for you!). Interviews will last 60‐

90 minutes. Participants will be asked broad, open‐ended questions about their decision to immigrate to the

U.S., their experience of immigration and the application process to U.S. residency programs, and their

experiences thus far of working in a U.S. hospital.

Based on participants’ stories, the aims of this study are to help better support international medical graduates

in the United States; to improve recruitment and retention of doctors by both India and the United States ; and

to develop sustainable, ethical, and feasible solutions to physician shortages in underserved areas. (You will

also be a TREMENDOUS help to a medical student completing her masters’ degree at the UCSF‐UC Berkeley

Joint Medical Program!)

This study has been approved by the UC Berkeley Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects. All

results will be kept anonymous, and there are no anticipated or foreseeable risks to participation. Pending

expected funding, all interview participants will be compensated with FIFTY US DOLLARS.
