Default swich from j1 research visa to j1 clinical visa

I am from India ...right now i am in usa on b1/b2 visa but my university is sponsoring me j1 visa on research in neurology.. should i grab this opportunity because i will be paid here as well as i will be able to stay in usa for a longer time as in b1/b2 visa u have to go to your home country in 6 months. and can u please tell me that will i be able to change my visa status from j1 research visa to j1 clinical visa right away at that time , when i will get match in residency...or do i have to go through 2 year thing at that time ?

coversion from j1 research to j1 clinical without the 2 year home country rule is possible provided you dont have any gap between your j1 research and clinical visa,, else 2 year home country rule would kick in.
So if you trying for j1 research visa try to do it till march 15th and then immediately apply for j1 clinical visa in the institute where you get matched.
Hope this helps....!!!

c the j1 visa are issued with the guarantee by the student that at the end of your term you will return to your home country as your home country needs you. It is a sort of mutual agreement between the US and your home country so , when you have completed your course (research or residency) you have to return to home country .This thing I am pretty sure.

so before the end of ur j1 research term if you get another j1 visa that time the 2 year home rule wont be applicable as you haven't completed the j1 visa programme (research) for which you have granted the j1 visa and you would be on a new j1 visa (ecfmg residency in ur case).
