Allergy/Immunology Fellowship Program

Established in 1958, the allergy/immunology fellowship program strives to provide a well-rounded educational experience to pursue a career in allergy and clinical immunology. This program offers supervised in-depth training in clinical allergy, asthma and immunologic diseases with cross-training in adult medicine at least 25% of the time. Structured research projects under direct supervision by faculty members allow trainees to develop skills important to seeking an academic position. Our graduates enjoy successful careers in private practice, academic institutions and with the Food and Drug Administration.
