Hi, my brother came to the US a month ago with a J1 visa. He is a veterinary graduate.
He's not happy with the intership he's at and he would like to change/transfer to another one (more related to the field other than doing 18+ hrs a day of farming labor for minimum wage) (He is not subject to the 2 years residency rule). Right now he is at a farm in Wisconsin.
He would like to transfer to a Hospital/Animal clinic etc. for the rest of the remaining time in his J1 visa and maybe apply for an UF intership for next year 2012-2013 (with a new J1). My questions are: It is possible to do this? What are his options if any?
I agree with my colleague. His options depend on the program sponsor.
