Major Goals of Training Program
This is a combined training program with two years of clinical experience in both pediatrics and internal medicine and one year of full-time research. This is second oldest medical school in the western United States , and the allergy-immunology program has prepared physicians for successful careers in academic medicine and community practices for four decades. All facilities are fully integrated on one campus, and there are a wide variety of patients of all ages with complex allergic and immunologic disorders. The clinical experience includes an intense schedule of outpatient and inpatient consultations for individuals with difficult asthma and respiratory allergies, congenital and acquired immunodeficiencies, atopic, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The primary goal is to train academic allergists/immunologists.

A comprehensive conference schedule exposes fellows to a didactic review of basic and clinical allergy-immunology. Fellows take an active role in these conferences, and gain considerable experience in teaching medical students, residents, and other postdoctoral fellows in the program.

The program involves rigorous exposure to basic and clinical research in asthma, allergy and immunology. Fellows are expected to show independence in study design and execution of projects under experienced mentors. Presentation at national meetings and publications in high quality journals are anticipated.
