Well I know members of the medical profession have moved, now quite what you need to be recognised I do not know, but something you should be able to easily find out, seems you have 2 States to check.

The big issue is whether any of this is practical, as has been mentioned different visa's different issues and I presume you both want to work.

Getting a job offer is often the easy bit, most Employers have little idea of visa sponsorship, usually the problems arise when they find out.

Now if your Partners Employer does this frequently, if whoever you have talked to is in the know, then a very different situation.

From a medical perspective think of it as treating the symptoms not the cause.

Nobody is having a go, I only moved through sheer luck, pretty sure I would not have made it through my Professional qualifications. Despite being a Fellow. It was not planned just happened. Others on here have spent many years planning a route.

What is the worst case, you may have to do some sort of conversion course, additional exam. US is very bureaucratic so I am sure there will be something.

There are plenty of scenarios that would need the employee to be based in the US, but working remotely from any location.

Getting a visa for a remote role will be the tricky bit though. Did your husband speak to his employer, any luck?

I transferred on an L1A and had a remote contract on arrival. I did use an office for a few days a week, but contractually I've been work from home since arriving in 2016. Being in the USA itself helps - while the time difference isn't massive with the East Coast, the 8 hours with the West Coast could be a pain. Why would an employer do this? Well, sometimes the employer wants to keep the employee - they might be pretty good at the job and while the Visa process may be costly, imagine being months without a valuable employee and the lost time after a new one joins, not to mention the loss of knowledge.

Exactly this.

I moved on L-1B in 2017 and was initially office-based to help with onboarding, but since 2018 have been working remotely full time from another state entirely.
