Passport Visa issues when starting residency

Hi guys,

I am hoping to match in one of the 2 programs I interviewed with. I have the following questions:

1- Do they tell you what kind of visa you get along with the Match itself? or do they decide that later?

2- I am on a tourist visa right now. What is the procedure for getting the J1 or H1 visa done? Do I need to go back to my home country to get it ?

3- How long does it take to process the visa after the match? Is it done in time for the beginning of the residency in June?
