Welcome to the University of Rochester Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology Division and the Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Training Program. The fellowship training program is an ACGME accredited program with an extensive history at the University. It enjoys the unique perspective and advantage of only a few training programs in the country being that fellows are trained in collaboration with Pediatric Allergy/Immunology and the University has a combined Division with the ability to offer combined training in both Allergy/Immunology and Rheumatology. Our clinical and research faculty members ensure that fellows in the program receive the highest caliber training and are prepared for multiple career paths including clinical practice, teaching, and research.

Educational opportunities for fellows are quite diverse given our collaboration and joint patient care endeavors with multiple departments within the Medical Center including Pediatrics, Dermatology and others.  These relationships afford fellows not only a more varied clinical experience but additional research opportunities as well.

We participate in the ERAS Application Service. Please note that you must be a U.S. citizen, permanent U.S. resident, or J1 Visa holder to apply to the fellowship program. The University of Rochester does not sponsor H1B Visas so unfortunately your application cannot be considered.

The Fellowship Program Coordinator is Laurie Trobia, and she can be reached by email at Laurie_Trobia@urmc.rochester.edu or by calling (585) 351-3274.

Fellow Perspectives

"Even balance of exposure to all topics"

"(Teaching faculty) had a great breath of knowledge and were approachable."

"There is a true 50/50 exposure between pediatric and adult A/I, resulting in a comprehensive program. Faculty are dedicated to the education of the fellows."
