* J1 vs H4 EAD?
 #862664

  I am applying for Internal medicine residency later this year. I am wondering, whether it is better to apply residency requesting for J1 visa or apply with H4 ead?. Lately i came across few programs not considering H4 ead applicants for residency.

Any Input would be highly appreciated. Thanks for helping me with the process.

  You should apply residency requesting for J1 visa. There are few reasons:
a. All IMG programs are familiar with J1, not many programs have awareness about H4 EAD. That will just increase complexity to your application. I think with so huge pool of competent applicants, keep your application as simple and straightforward as you can.
b. You can do fellowship on J1, not sure about H4 EAD (ideally you should be able to do it but I am unaware of it).

All the best with your residency journey!!
