My program has not told us yet when we will start orientation...I was wondering if other programs had given you dates yet.

Again, congrats to everyone...I'm so glad it's over though.

for anyone matching in the philly area programs --

beware -- they start notoriously early. first off, all programs start a week before july 1st. then there is hospital orientation (benefits, payroll, etc). plus for EM (ACLS, ATLS training) if you don't already have it under your belt....

i remeber my start date for orientation was something around june 10th. one of my friends started internship june 17th or so ...

DAMN that is early. Our interns have PALS/NALS/ACLS like the 26th of June.

Last year (in Philly) I think we started ACLS June 12th. Orientation ran over a week and the real deal started the 23rd. Although it may have started ealy, almost 1 year later, I am thanking my lucky stars for it - the early start means ALL interns at our institution get the last week of June off! Add the fact that my scheduled va-k is June and that equals 2 weeks off in a row! :D

Our program started a few days before july 1st for hospital orientation (pagers, salary, etc). Then for the month of July, we have an EM orientation.. We got PALS/ACLS, etc and lectures. It was a great month. *sigh*
