How can Doctor (Specialist) come to US and start practice here?

Hi,
I have a relative who is an opthalmologist in India. She completed her MBBS and Specialization from a very reputed medical institute in India. She wants to come to US and experience the Medical world here . Please let me know if anyone has any information where we can find relevant info.
Thanks

If she wants to come to the US, she will have to do another residency in ophthalmology in order to practice.
The institution offering the residency will assist with immigration issues.
She will have to apply to an academic medical center for the residency. Most large cities have a public hospital with optho residencies and slots difficult to fill with American residents. She’d have a better shot at such placements.
Apply directly to the institution’s office of graduate medical education.
