Our stance

An estimated 27,000 health care workers and support staff depend on DACA for their authorization to work in the United States. We continue to work to ensure members of the health care workforce approved for DACA are able to continue employment, education, training and research in the health professions

Over 60 medical schools

consider applicants with DACA status.

DACA could add 5,400 physicians

to the U.S. health system in the next decade.
