Question regarding changing J1 program

Hello

I am a FMG that is doing a fellowship in Oncology under ECFMG J1 visa.

According to the ECFMG site, I can change the program within the first two years.

I would like to start a residency in internal medicine. If I am accepted to the 2010-2011 program, will the ECFMG acccept this change under the same J1 visa or will I have to start all the J1 process again, including going to the department of health in my country of origin to get a letter if need?

Thanks

Best way to approach this would be calling ECFMG.
