What our fellows say...

Cheryl Rozario, M.D.

"Our faculty, specifically their approachability, genuine care, as well as dedication to our learning, is the highlight of our program. URMC has an incredible reputation both locally and nationally with a very collegial atmosphere, which I experienced firsthand during my residency training here. I knew that I would also receive an excellent training in Allergy & Immunology, with very supportive faculty and a wide variety of clinical cases to learn from."
