Endocrine Society Comments on Proposed J and F Visa Rule

October 26, 2020

To: Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs

"On behalf of the Endocrine Society and our membership of over 18,000 scientists, clinicians and healthcare providers at all career stages, I am writing with significant concerns about the proposed rule Establishing a Fixed Time Period of Admission and an Extension of Stay Procedures for Individuals in F, J and I Status. This rule will have an immediate and devastating impact on access to care during a once-in-a-century pandemic and will undermine the long-term stability of endocrine healthcare workforce. In addition, the proposed rule would impose severe burdens on international scholars and further disrupt the biomedical research enterprise in the United States by discouraging scientists from pursuing graduate and postdoctoral research programs."
