Help B1 visa not issued yet, 9 months now

Dear everyone

I was accepted to do a 6 weeks elective in Internal Medicine in Temple University.
Went for the B1 visa interview, had everything planned and ready. Answered all VO questions and presented all documents. VO then told me: your visa is accepted but needs further administrative processing and was given a pink/red slip.
It is still under processing for the past 9 months, and unfortunately the elective was cancelled.

Please answer my following questions:
Do you think my visa will ever be issued?
Do you think this will affect my future plans for scoring a residency and going to the states?
Do you think I will be issued pink slips for future visits to the states, whether for visit visas or work visas?
