  • In order for us to sponsor the H1-B visa, USMLE Step III must be taken and cleared before you enter the Match. Applications for visas/status are sent out IMMEDIATELY after we receive our match results in early-March. If the Step III results are not available on that day, a J-1 visa will be the only option offered. NO EXEPTIONS.
