Listening Any other visa possible for training than GC, J1, H1b?

Hi, I am going to apply for residency training for the next year and have a question about visa.
I am currently in the US with J1-research visa, finished J1 waiver process, and recently filed for green card. I have work permit, and as you may know, I can lawfully stay in the US until the decision of green card, which may take even years in the worst case.
And here is my question: do I still need to have the H1b visa, or can I apply and get medical training as I am now, without newly obtaining H1b visa? (I cannot get J1-clinical because of J1 waiver)

Thank you very much.
