The Tulane Allergy and Clinical Immunology Fellowship Training Program is fully accredited by the ACGME. Our program is a combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics program that permits entry of residents trained in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, or both. Trainees receive comprehensive clinical training in adult and pediatric allergic and immunologic diseases.
Trainees receive comprehensive clinical training in adult and pediatric allergic and immunologic diseases. The Clinical Immunology and Allergy Unit includes the Immunology and Allergy Research Laboratory, as well as the Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratory. Facilities contain over 12,550 sq. ft. of laboratories, and fellows may complete their research requirements through participation in the Section's on-going projects. Trainees also have the opportunity to develop protocols for new research proposals, and such efforts are encouraged. Research opportunities also exist at the USDA where on-going studies focus on the effects of processing on the allergenicity off peanuts and tree nuts.
The program is based in Tulane Medical Center, and fellows rotate through the clinics and consultation services of affiliated hospitals, including The Medical Center of Louisiana at New Orleans (MCLNO) (formerly part of the Charity Hospital System), the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System (formerly known as the Veteran's Affairs Medical Center) and the Ochsner Medical Center.
Successful completion of 24 months of full-time education in this training program in Clinical Immunology and Allergy, which is fully accredited by the ACGME, qualifies the physician trainee for examination by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (a conjoint board of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics).
