Not according to many upper middle class residents of Manhattan or San Francisco. As the New York Times likes to remind me, it's hard to make ends meet with under $500K a year these days

Not sure where you are coming from, but I moved here single and I will tell you dating in Manhattan was not cheap... I don’t think I ever went “Dutch” and I had friends who spent more on dating than rent... no idea what VA is like..

If you and your specialty is in such demand, why do you need to use the H1B instead of the O visa. Doctors, EMTs, lab workers, etc. are not million dollar professions. Perhaps your field is as a medical scientist and you are being offered work in the pharm industry.

Or perhaps you are counting the 7 figures included with a decimal point, i.e. $1,000,000 = $10,000.00

I don’t see why you would use an O, I have seen employees on over $1m a year total comp on an H1b. Nothing the OP has posted indicated they are of any extraordinary ability. They have just trained for a longtime for their specialty, but likely it’s just a need for it rather than some rare specialty given the comp indicated, they probably have 2-4 years expensive post their TI/resident training, maybe less if their is an acute shortage like ICU, people who can do intubation for example are in short supply with COVID19.

Some medical specialties are a absolutely million dollar professions .... I’m sure the the plastic surgeon that we had to Pay $1000 to Stich up my sons head after a fall at daycare because he does not take insurance makes over $1m a year... I have worked for a medical school, it’s not uncommon for some doctors in the US to do an MD and MBA at the same time and they are doing that because they plan to run their own practice and earn a lot of money.

Salary looks good, do you need experience or do they provide on the job training?

Medical can indeed pay $$$$, although as some say there are lots of extra costs like liability insurance. My b-i-l is an ER doc in Las Vegas and his entry-level salary there after completing his residency about four years back was in the mid-six figures.

Maybe so, but in any language grammar is required. Also, if you're working in healthcare/sciences/research in the US, a good command of the English language is probably required.

Have you ever seen dictations from an MD? They are all basically incomprehensible anyway, even from a native speaker.

Dictating notes is the worst thing that was ever invented.

On research my limited experience in medical / academia is that they hire the best talent and that’s often international.

On healthcare, english is not the first language for everyone who lives in the US: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Languages_of_the_United_States#Most_common_languag es

Depending on the community the provider serves English may not be the first choice language.

I personally would look at the providers education and experience, my wife’s OBGYN in the city was Japanese and the backup was his Italian wife. Both excellent clinicians, their grammar never played a part in selecting them.
