J1 Visa J1 visa. How to obtain it?

Hey everyone, thank you all for contributing to this forum as it has helped me alot and I have matched in an IM program.
I am clueless about how to obtain a J1 visa and the program hasn't told me much about it. I would really appreciate it if someone could walk me through the process. I know that you have to fill out the DS 160 form like any other visa application. I know that I would need the contract from the hospital. What is the DS 2019 form? And something about the Statement of Need?

Any help would be really appreciated! Thanks!
