Default J1 Visa required

I was just browsing through a few programs on Freida and I noticed many programs stated that they require non US IMGs to have J1 visa. Does that mean we need to have J1 visa as an applicant at the time of interview to be eligible for that program ? Or will they sponsor us later on?
Btw I have passed Step 2 CS, Step 1 and 2 in higher 240s 2 months of USCE and 2011 grad. Need visa.
