It will vary from program to program. From my understanding you can't really be a resident getting a stipend on a F1 unless you are doing the F1-OPT. Typically, at least in the OMFS world, people are on a J1 or TN (if Canadian).

iam an international student in the US doing my 3rd year MD in an US medical school. I have got step1 score of 251. Iam worried about my chances of getting into speciality residency programs as iam not a green card holder or an US citizen. Do residency programs sponsor and are they open to international students graduating from US med schools?

You would probably get an F1 or J1 or TN visa, I know some friends are international and all started their medical residencies in the states this year.

look up the specialty program requirements and see if they are willing to accept international students. If they are they will sponsor you to receive an F1 or J1 visa, appropriate student visa.
