I'm assuming you're talking about the B1/B2 visitor visa.

1- No.
2- A US passport copy of someone who lives in the US have been said to help.
3- No. In most cases, B1/B2 visa is valid for 5 or 10 years (depending on your country of origin).

To facilitate a smooth visa approval, have copies of USMLE scores, letter of invitation from a US sponsor (where you will be going to live or get training), US passport copy of the person you will live with (e.g. a relative), a financial bank statement, plus maybe a letter of sponsorship from your parent that he/she would financially support you.
