H1b visa question

Postby janel80 » 02 Jul 2008, 00:59

I am a fresh graduate of medicine year 2008 and I plan to take the USMLE steps 1 and 2 this year. I did not do my internship training in my local country. Does that mean that I won't be suitable for an F1 visa? I am planning to apply for an H1B visa, would that mean that I would need a US medical license prior to applying for a visa? :?:
