I have been on H1 visa for last 2 years...and now have got accepted in a 4 year psychiatry residency program that is willing to sponsor me both h1 and j1 visas.

my questions are --

1) If i go for h1 visa , i will use up all the 6 years on my h1 at the end of my residency. As such, I am clueless as to what will be my options at the end of residency, ie, once i used up my 6 years on h1???

2) also, in that case, will it be better for me to go for j1??

3) I have heard that you can apply for GC at end of residency, and if i find a job well within my third year of residency who are willing to hire me at the end of 4 years of my residency, can they file for my GC in third year itself as a future employee (as i wont be able to start working until the end of my residency)???

any feedback plz...thanks!!

yes if you go on H1B visa you can apply for GC if you get a employer sponsor at the end of your residency.
