H1B visa - worried

Is the fact that I am going to need an H1B visa a serious drawback when applying for residencies.

Very Worried IMG :(

This cuts number of potential programs in half.

I am in the same boat as you very worried.

I think it may not be as easy as other US citizen/ GC IMGs, but as long as candidate's USMLE score is great and our LoR is great with many USCE, we have chances at community hospitals that AMGs US IMGs will not apply. (like inner city, country side, very dangerous neighborhoods, poor working condition, low salaries)

as long as we apply broadly targeting these un-desired programs, I think we should have chance.

Good luck to you!
