Major Goals of Training Program
Our program offers to board certified/eligible medicine or pediatric trainees, expertise in the clinical management and translational research of allergic and immunological diseases both in adults and children. The two-year program consists of rotations in a busy academic allergy and immunology practice, a large private allergy practice and in-hospital consult services at Albany Medical Center, the leading academic hospital in Northeastern New York. Electives are available in pulmonary medicine, rheumatology, gastroenterology, infectious diseases and HIV medicine. A continuous 6 month rotation in clinical or translational research in food allergy, asthma or allergic inflammation is an integral part of the program. Trainees are required to complete a research project before graduation, suitable to be presented at a national meeting and/or published in a peer-reviewed journal. Those who are seriously considering an academic career may elect to do a third year of training dedicated mainly to research leading to a junior faculty training/developing investigator grant.

Major Goals of Training Program
The objectives of this program are to provide the trainee with the experience, information, and attitudes which will allow him or her to become a skilled clinician and clinical scientist in the extremely broad arena into which the specialty of allergy/immunology has evolved. We intend to prepare the trainee to function as a subspecialist in primary, secondary, and tertiary care of patients with diseases involving the immunologic system; to enable the trainee to pass these skills on to others via clinical or academic teaching; and to enable the trainee to appreciate, interpret and perform research in Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

This program is predominantly based in the Department of Medicine, with most trainees having internal medicine backgrounds. The major clinical experience is in true clinical immunology, spanning the usual atopic disease spectrum as well as extensive exposure to a broad range of immunologically mediated diseases, including autoimmune diseases, vasculitis, and immunodeficiency states. Excellent pediatric cross training is provided by Drs. Robert Schwartz, Robert Holzhauer, Mariola Kubisca, and Clement Ren.

The hospital operates a diagnostic Clinical Immunology Laboratory which provides most of the common immunologic assays for the medical center and the community, affording further opportunities for learning and a good source of material for clinical studies.

We also offer a three-year combined training program in Allergy/Immunology and Rheumatology, since our unit combines both sub-specialties.

Participation in the research activities of the unit is required of all trainees. An additional year or more of training in research skills is strongly encouraged for trainees considering an academic career.
