Our Program

The 2-year fellowship in allergy and immunology is a comprehensive and intensive program, during which fellows will be expected to:

  • Achieve clinical excellence
  • Gain complete familiarity with the diagnostic techniques that are essential to current allergy practice
  • Acquire the knowledge and experience for certification by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology
  • Participate in scholarly educational and research activity
  • Participate in and enhance the education of medical students and residents


The first year of fellowship is dedicated to building clinic skills, both inpatient and outpatient, in all aspects of pediatric and adult allergy and immunology, including a dedicated immunodeficiency clinic and food oral immunotherapy clinic. Fellows will spend time in the pulmonary lab learning and doing pulmonary function tests.

The second year of fellowship provides protected research time to develop skills and expertise in a chosen area with close mentorship.

During both years, fellows will spend a half day per week building a longitudinal clinic.

Core 4-week rotations include ambulatory clinic and inpatient consultation. Common consultations include diagnosis and management of drug allergies, including antibiotic and aspirin desensitizations, hypereosinophilic syndromes, angioedema, immunodeficiency and anaphylaxis.

Fellows will learn how to diagnose and manage patients with a wide spectrum of disorders, including primary immunodeficiencies, hereditary angioedema, anaphylaxis, food allergies, eosinophilic esophagitis, drug allergies, asthma, atopic dermatitis and mastocytosis.
