Major Goals of Training Program
This is a pediatric-internal medicine program with entry tracks for residents trained in pediatrics, internal medicine, or combined, and it has been accredited by the ACGME since 1988. The Allergy/Immunology Training Program, which falls under the Department of Pediatrics (USF), is affiliated with All Children's Hospital, and the Allergy/Immunology Training Program in the USF Department of Internal Medicine. Trainees receive in-depth experience in the full spectrum of allergic and immunologic diseases in both children and adults. Individual faculty each has expertise in specific areas of basic and clinical research. Collaborative research projects may be conducted with other departments and divisions of the university. Development of skills in clinical and basic research is facilitated by the extensive clinical material. Hands-on participation in research projects, according to individual interests is emphasized as is formal presentation of research at national meetings and preparation of peer-reviewed publications.

Major Goals of Training Program
Our training program is designed to prepare specialists to provide expert medical care for patients with allergic and immunologic disorders and to serve as consultants, educators and physician scientists in the field of allergy and immunology. It is an internal medicine/pediatric program with entry tracks for residents trained in internal medicine, pediatrics, or both and has been accredited by the ACGME since July 1, 1982. Trainees (fellows) receive in-depth experience in atopic and allergic diseases, asthma, related respiratory conditions, primary and secondary immunodeficiency, bone marrow transplantation, and all aspects of clinical immunology. Development of skills in clinical investigation and research is facilitated by state-of-the-art research laboratories with the capability to address the full range of basic immunology, cell biology, and molecular biology. In addition, the trainee will learn all clinical procedures including rhinoscopy. A state-of-the-art clinical research unit exists for training in clinical, translational and pharmaceutical sponsored research.

Trainees will be involved in consultative and out-patient care at Tampa General Hospital, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, All Children's Hospital, USF Adult and Pediatric Allergy/Immunology clinics, James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital, and faculty physicians' offices. They attend six weekly conferences on basic and clinical allergy and immunology given by residents, fellows, and faculty from the USF College of Medicine.

Upon completion of training, fellows will have the necessary prerequisites and the core competencies to begin the independent practice of allergy and immunology. These competencies include patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism and system-based practice.
