Hi all -- I would greatly appreciate the advice of the collective SDN community.

The situation: A resident applies for a urological subspecialty fellowship on an international visa (J-1) and matched successfully via the traditional process. The visa situation was fully disclosed to the program at the time of application, and he was assured that "it shouldn't be a problem."

Fast-forward to today: The program is reneging on the fellowship since it is not able to fund the position in a way which is compatible with the visa.

What is this applicant's recourse? Is this a clear-cut match violation? Even if it is, is there any way to force the program to fulfill their obligation?

Thanks SDN!

That was my thought as well. It's a shame that "match violations" are only policed for the applicants and usually not for the programs themselves. The little guy always loses.

Unless the collective force of SDN has a more creative solution...
