Ok, so I'm finding tons of info on being an IMG and visa issues for getting US residencies, but how hard is it to get H1-B or J-1 visas if you are a CDN US med grad? I spoke to a lawyer who said it isn't that bad if you're a Cdn US grad even if you get stuck with the J-1. Is this true? If I want an H1, how should I approach asking programs about their stand on giving these out during interviews? I've already called programs, and came up with some that sponsor H1 visas. Do I not apply to those not offering this visa? I also read that you should be super competative to get the H1B visa in another thread. Is this true? What if you're an average Cdn US medical grad? Thanks for any insight you can offer.
