Major Goals of Training Program
The principal objective of the Allergy and Immunology Training Program is to provide appropriate clinical and research training for physicians who are considering academic careers within the specialty of allergy and immunology. The program is designed to provide rigorous clinical training which seeks to develop competence in the care of children and adults with allergic and immunologic diseases. To this is coupled an intensive research experience supervised by a preceptor.

Major Goals of Training Program
The NIH Allergy and Immunology Clinical Fellowship Program is based in the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The major goal of the program is to prepare physicians (pediatricians and internists) for productive and independent academic careers in allergy, immunology, and asthma. The training program provides extensive clinical training, covering the broad spectrum of allergic and immunologic diseases in children and adults, as well as extensive research training under the mentorship of NIH investigators. Clinical training consists of 1 full year of extensive clinical training in outpatient and inpatient allergy and immunology, with rotations at the NIH Clinical Center, the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the Children’s National Medical Center, the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Allergy Clinic, and a local private practice. Clinical training extends into the second year of training in the setting of continuity clinics and service on the allergy and immunology consultation service at the NIH. The second and third years of training are devoted primarily to the development of research skills based on coursework and original research in clinical, translational, or basic aspects of allergic and immunologic diseases, performed under the mentorship of a senior NIH investigator. Didactic conferences include a curriculum in basic and clinical immunology, case conferences, journal clubs, and Grand Rounds. Fellows completing the program have the appropriate background to conduct successful and rewarding careers in patient care and research focused on allergy, asthma, and immunologic diseases, including in academic centers, regulatory agencies, the pharmaceutical industry, or in private practice.
