We offer 2 positions per year for the 2-year program. We accept residents who have completed training in either internal medicine, pediatrics or medicine-pediatrics into our Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited program.
The program provides a particularly strong hands-on clinical experience in all aspects of Allergy and Immunology. The fellow experience is primarily in the outpatient setting, and includes training in inpatient consultation. The schedule also includes elective rotations, allowing the fellow the opportunity to tailor their experiences within the program.
Our program takes pride in our diversity and a collegial and friendly work atmosphere. Our allergy and immunology program is unique in that fellows have the opportunity to apply for combined Allergy/Immunology and Masters in Public Health (MPH)-Preventive Medicine in the Leadership Preventive Medicine Residency (LPMR) program through the prestigious Dartmouth Institute. With this 3-year program, fellows are board eligible in Allergy/Immunology and Preventive Medicine and get an MPH (tuition free), while being paid a fellow salary. The Leadership Preventive Medicine Residency offers fellows skills in quality improvement, leadership and population health where they lead a practicum focused on improving care.
Our mission is to train future leaders in allergy and immunology. Through our program's mentorship and curriculum, our fellows will acquire expert-level clinical competence in the care of children and adults with routine and complex allergic/immunologic disorders, including competency in patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning, systems-based practice, professionalism, communication, and interpersonal skills. Fellows will conduct and publish cutting-edge clinical, translational, and/or basic research studies and fully engage in the practice of life-long scholarship through graduate-level coursework, allergy and immunology didactics, and/or oral/poster presentation of clinical and research topics.
