Major Goals of Training Program
The Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology offers a two year fellowship program in Allergy and Clinical Immunology. The program is ACGME approved and is designed to prepare pediatric and/or internal medicine trained fellows for independent or group practice and to qualify for the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (a conjoined board of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics) exam. The Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology sees patients in both internal medicine and pediatric age groups. Henry Ford Hospital is one of the major referral centers in Michigan. In addition, fellows-in-training are exposed to a wide variety of allergic as well as clinical immunologic problems. The fellow learns to handle patients on a day-to-day basis, much as one would in a private practice situation. In addition, fellows participate in interesting patient and project research. The fellow is instructed in basic immunology at Wayne State University while attending a graduate level immunology course. The fellows are expected to present the results of research projects at national meetings and in peer-reviewed publications. The fellows learn by consultation and demonstration as well as through weekly didactic lectures and literature review sessions.

Major Goals of Training Program
The goal of the Allergy & Clinical Immunology training program at the University of Michigan is to train internists and pediatricians in the field of Allergy & Clinical Immunology.

In keeping with this goal, the Allergy and Clinical Immunology Fellowship training includes a clinical experience comprising 50% of the total experience with a minimum of 25% research. With close faculty mentorship, trainees choose, design and complete either a focused clinical or bench research project and present their research findings at national meetings and in peer-reviewed publications.
