    VIsa

    Hey,

    there are two options J1 and H1B

    J1 - is a hassle, but more programs are willing to sponsor it. For this visa you will need to take a Canadian exam (I forgot the name), you can looking it up at their website, Canadian Medical Council I think its called, they have all the info for IMGs. After you take that test (in year 4 of medschool), you will need a "letter of need" from some official in Canada, also not sure who, there is a lot of info on this on the web. So, after you get the letter, and complete the residency, you will be barred from working in the US for 2 years.

    H1B - is a better option, but not as many programs are willing to sponsor it, PLUS you need to have taken Step 3 before getting this visa, and alot of states DON't allow you to take Step 3 until you are in residency.

    Hope this helps :O)
    GOODLUCK
