    It's more like 1,500,000 per year, considering all of the mechanisms. There are 500,000 J-1s alone. The J-1 is used to bring in physicians, and is not capped.

      this link it appears that there are about 3,000 physicians in the USA under J visas.

      IOW, hardly enough to affect career prospects for USA-born doctors one way or another

        They fill thousands of summer jobs. We have youth unemployment of 25 % and we bring in workers from Malaysia to fill MacDonald's position - whY? Simple. J-1 get huge tax breaks - no SS, no unemployment, no medicare taxes.

        Why do we give corporatists a tax break to throw US workers out of jobs?

        Why do you approve of the Bob Perry cheap labor system?
