J1 Visa Doing Multiple Non ACGME with the same J1 visa

Hi members

I have an offer for Non ACGME fellowship in neurosurgical oncology. I did not take step 3 and I will not have time to take it before starting my fellowship so I will go for J1 visa.

My Questions:

1- This fellowship is one or two years. Can I get J1 visa for one year and if I like the position I would extend to the second year??

2- I wanted another fellowship but they sponsored only H1b. my question is: can I get the first fellowship and after one year go to another Non ACGME fellowship in another institute and in a different sub-specialty?

3- Can I start residency after one or two years fellowships with the same J1 visa ?

4- What is the solution to get the second fellowship? I do not want to refuse my my first chance in US and take step 3 to apply for H1b??

Best wishes and regards
