Default Should I choose B1/B2 or J visa?

Hello!
I am an IMG from Turkey. I have passed all the USMLEs and planning on applying 2020 match. And I have a position for research beforehand. The university where I am planning to go for research suggests me to come as a J1 research visa. But I have read on so many forums that switching to J1 research to J1 clinical may be hard. And I already have a B1/B2 visa on my passport. So what should I do? Should I go on a B1/B2 and ask for extension of 6 months more and do 1 year research till I match in 2021 or go on J1 visa and try to convert to J1 clinical visa?
Thank you
