yes there are many programs which sponsor only J1 and not H1B. In fact most of the programs sponsor only J1.

J1 is sponsored by ECFMG while H1B should be sponsored by the hospital, which is a pain apparently.

To clarify visas:

1. J-1 is only sponsored by ECFMG, programs do not sponsor the J-1, they only indicate if the accept J-1 visa holding candidates.

1. H-1B is sponsored by individual programs who indicate they are willing to sponsor an H-1B visa

Each program has different preferences for visas. They may not deal with visas at all, only accept J-1, only sponsor H1-B, or accept J-1 and sponsor H1-B.

Learn about the visas at:
J-1: http://www.ecfmg.org/evsp/
H1-B: http://www.mdgreencard.com/temporary...sidents.html#1
