I think we were one of the earliest to start -- third week of June. Most start in July.

I've heard of a few starting the first or second week in June (for orientation, ALS, etc).

Check the websites of the programs you ranked high, they will probably have the schedules on them.

Good advice.

We started July. The interns have one month of 'orientation' and then start rotations in august.

Orientation at all the Philly programs tends to start middle of June (12th-16th or so). Interns actually start clinical shifts the last week of June (typically the 23rd), so they need to get the paperwork and merit badges in early.

They told me when I interviewed in Fresno that they start in the latter half of June for ACLS etc.

Where? The earliest I know of (and I know a lot about this) is the third week in June (around the 13th), and those are even uncommon to rare - the first week in June would overlap on med school graduations.
