J1 Visa J1 visa 2 year back to home problem

In J1 visa, it is necessary to return to home for 2 years after the residency is over. Now if I pass usmle step 3 during my residency and If I do not want to waste my 2 years in my home country; what can I do so that I do not have to return to my home country for 2 years and continue practising in the United States ?

Smile J1 Visa help

You can do two things:

1. Continue to do followship & then (look for # 2)
2. Conrad program. Work in a low medical coverage area for 2 years(pls check the # of yrs 2 or 3). It's like working in remote area where medical coverage is low.

Let me know if that helps. I am provide more help if needed
