    Do you already live in the US or have a work visa?

    I am no expert but I believe by the time you get granted a work visa you will be past new grad residency eligibility. Maybe someone more in-the-know will contribute, but I am relatively certain its not a simple or fast process.

    Plus, new grad residency programs are always overwhelmed with applicants and turn many, many qualified grads away. So getting a work visa for such a program is not going to happen. Sorry.
