Default Visa for research, please help

I'm a medical graduate from Norway and have got a research position at Mayo clinic and they're offering me a J-visa. I want to apply for residency later on and have not done my USMLE yet.
Is it possible to get a waiver for the 2 years home residency rule by no-objection letter, Ive heard that they are mostly rejected due to US- funding.
How can I adjust my timing for the research and applying for residency, concerning my visa situation.

Thank you. I appreciate your help.
