Passport Can't visit while awaiting Green Card

hello, everybody. i am from bangladesh and this is my first interaction with usmle forum. i am going through my 1 year rotatory training after completion of 5 years of medical study. it is a long cherished dream for me to get into the us residency. but now i am facing a problem.

my parents are green card holder and they have applied for me very recently.and my priority date is 13th december 2009. i heard that if any one has applied for the immigration he would not be granted any form of visa before his priority date which i believe in my case would be about 6 years from now. can anyone please tell me if it is possible to get student visa or any kind of visa for residency while one has applied for the pr as in my case. the whole dream of my usmle and residency depends on these. thank u.

While its true that getting a visa while awaiting immigration is difficult but it's not impossible.
There's no such rule but it's just that visa officers are more difficult to convince.
