    An FAQ would help prevent people like me from asking stupid questions.

    IM Subspecialties FAQ

    A few of the sections are a little outdated right now given the recent changes in the application process of some of the subspecialties. I'll update it when I have a bit more free time.

    I have minimal experience with visas (I'm an AMG), but have heard also that H1b is less ideal due to fewer fellowship programs sponsoring it. At these programs you may be out of luck even if you are an amazing candidate. Still, this is just hearsay. Would recommend contacting programs directly for the most concrete information.

    As for presentations, original research (basic science or clinical) > case reports for the most part, since case reports are considered "low-hanging fruits" and are relatively easy to have lots of these. However, every bit helps, so I wouldn't count yourself out.

    I have a green card now, but last year I applied with a H1B and did not receive any interviews. I'm not sure if it was my visa status or my CV had to do with not getting the interviews. But I did hear that it is difficult to get interviews on H1b, J1 is a little easier.
