Major Goal of Training Program:
Our training program seeks to train internists and pediatricians to become leaders in the field of Allergy / Immunology.

The University of Arizona is a referral center for a broad patient base throughout the Southwest and Mexico. We treat the full spectrum of allergic and immunologic conditions in both children and adults, and therefore seek to train physicians who are highly competent in diagnosing and managing these patients. Further, we emphasize educating patients, their families and other health care professionals about these diseases.

The University of Arizona Allergy and Immunology program is proud to be affiliated with the Arizona Respiratory Center. This fully-developed and internationally recognized clinical research program provides infrastructure for clinical and translational research studies focusing on respiratory diseases. In addition, our collaboration with researchers within the state-of-the-art University of Arizona Bio5 Institute allows diverse opportunity for development of research skills and projects. Trainees will benefit from hands-on research experiences, will formally present research at national meetings, and will prepare manuscripts for peer-reviewed publication.
