The Allergy & Clinical Immunology Fellowship Program is fully accredited by the ACGME and provides outpatient clinical and inpatient/consultation clinical training in evaluation and management of a diverse patient population with allergic and immunologic disorders. The didactic component provides formal instruction including seminar and conference series in which diverse topics are discussed including medico legal issues/cases, ethical issues, the art of the practice of allergy and many others. The research program requires participation in design of research protocols or in on-going projects. Fellows are required to present findings in written and oral form. Laboratory research experience also exposes fellows to performance and interpretation of diagnostic assays related to atopic and immunologic diseases. Research educational experience is available in the Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratory where tissue-typing and cross-match studies are performed as well as at the United States Department of Agriculture where peanut and tree nut research is ongoing.
