H1 Visa What is the benefit of H1 visa for residency?

Can someone explain the benefit of doing residency on H1 visa, as opposed to J1 visa. If the hospital is offering H1 visa for residency, does it also mean that they will offer a job after completion of residency and file an employment based GC application?

I understand the process of getting GC for those on J1 visa: agree to work in underserved area for 5 years, get H1B, get EB2 NIW and get GC.

How does it work for someone who does residency on H1 visa?

J1 visa is kinda of visa which means you are an exchange skilled personal who have to go back to his or her home country after completion of there residency otherwise they have to do 2 years of work on undeserved area as a j1 waiver.

Whereas H1 visa is kinda working visa. Once you are done with your residency u can search for further work in US and also apply for green card.

HAi..Thanks for that info..Please also tell me what is the benefit of the university for sponcering us with H1 visa rather than J1.

I mean if they are sponcering us H1 does they indirectly mean us to work in the same university as that where they provide H1.

well if u can answer few for me that would be great ...... what are the chances for a match if a person already has H1 or J1

secondly, I may get H1 but then it would be sponcered by a pharmaceutical company so is there anything like the visa should be sponcered by an institution where I would be working or in other words I can work anywhere once I have the visa ..... would appreciate ur reply

As i know getting H1 just helps you to directly start job anywhere in US after residency without any home country certification but continuing working in same hospital will completely depend on your performance and contacts during your residency duration.
Anyways thats what i think. Other opinions are welcomed.

As i know H1 is a working visa and sponsored by the company or institution where individual is working. So if you change from pharmaceutical company to any residency program you may have to apply for H1 or J1 visa. For exact terms and conditions you can go to US immigration website. They have detailed info about all terms.
