Orientation period at Tampa area residencies for new grads (TGH, St. Anthony's, Fl. Hosp.)



I was wondering if anyone could let me know how long the orientation is for new grads at several of the main hospitals in the Tampa Area?

I am interviewing on the CTICU and NSICU at TGH and also applied for the Critical Care Residency program. I'm also wondering how long the ICU orientation is at Florida Hospital Tampa, Northside Heart and Vascular (HCA), and for St. Anthony's residency program.

I would greatly appreciate the feedback so I have an idea going into these interviews this week!
