Under J1 Visa after completion of the research program ,Upon their departure from the United States, J-1 visa holders are required to complete a mandatory two-year home-country physical presence prior to re-entry into the United States.
So I think its difficult to stay back in US for long ..Right ?
Have u completed USMLE Steps ?
