    Yes, there won't be a problem. Usually J1 research visas are sponsored by US hospitals. A Clinical J1 for a residency program is sponsored by the ECFMG not the residency program. Only the J1 visas, sponsored by the ECFMG, require the applicant to leave the US for 2 years (unless you have a waiver). Any other type of J1 visa can be renewed unless you don't have an sponsor. Hope this helpped.
