The fellowship curriculum is comprised of a combination of clinical, academic, and research opportunities. Fellows learn to manage patients with a diverse spectrum of allergic and immunologic disorders, including anaphylaxis, food and drug hypersensitivity, asthma, eosinophilic disorders, primary immunodeficiency, autoimmune disorders, hereditary angioedema, and mastocytosis. First year fellows take a graduate course in immunology during the fall and every fellow completes a scholarly project during their fellowship. Upon completion of their training, fellows will be prepared to practice in multiple settings as an expert in Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
The fellowship is organized into three different blocks based on time spent in clinical and scholarly activities and include:
- Adult and Pediatric Clinics
- Specialty Clinics
- Primary Immune Deficiency
- Pediatric Food Allergy
- Sub-specialty Rotations
- Didactic Sessions
- Inpatient Consults
Sample block diagrams with specific details can be found on pages 9-10 of the Fellowship Guide.
What our fellows say...
"I chose Rochester's program due to the strength of the program and the location in Upstate NY. I appreciate that we are a large referral center so as a trainee I have exposure to a wide range of diagnoses in both the pediatric and adult AI realm. The collaborations between divisions including dermatology, rheumatology and infectious disease (via immunodeficiency clinic) is a definite strong point that allows us all to learn more."
