United Kingdom US residency after FY1 (UK)

I am hoping there are some other UK students/docs on here that might be able to help. I am hoping to start residency after completing FY1. With residency commencing at the start of July and FY1 finishing in august it looks difficult, was wandering if anyone else has had the same problem.

I was also thinking about doing some research in the US, possibly for a year on a J1 visa. But I have read that you cannot apply for another visa for 2 years after the end of a J1, so would have to wait 2 years before starting residency on an H1B. I only want to start residency on an H1B with the hope of getting sponsored for a green card after.

And finally was wandering if any UK IMGs had managed to get USCE during foundation years, and if so when?

Anybody with experience of transferring from the UK to US system that could give advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks

US is not giving out Visa's anymore to IMG/FMGs.
The only country with exception to this is Canada.

Canada requires you to be a permanent resident / citizen in order to practice.
