Major Goals of Training Program
The Allergy and Clinical Immunology Fellowship Program at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics consists of a 2-year training program, with optional 3rd year, that includes both extensive clinical experiences and research training that will lead to a career in academic medicine. Research interests of the Allergy Division currently include airway cell biology (eosinophils, T regulatory cells), risk factors for the development of asthma, mechanisms of virus-induced asthma, and treatment of asthma. The Allergy Division is involved in numerous NIH sponsored research programs.
In addition to involvement in NIH sponsored networks, additional grants with NIH support include a program project grant to study the role of eosinophils in asthma, a program project grant to study the childhood origins of asthma, and a T32 training grant that supports research activities for the Fellows. Fellows participate in a basic or translational research project throughout their entire fellowship and present their work at a number of local and national meetings.
One of the unique aspects of the training program is that fellows are exposed to both adult and pediatric patients continually throughout their fellowship training. Fellows are responsible for both outpatient and inpatient (consult) care of individuals with a variety of allergic and immunologic diseases including primary immunodeficiency. Courses in basic molecular immunology and an introduction to biostatistics are part of the curriculum. Applicants must be board eligible or certified in either internal medicine or pediatrics and are chosen on the basis of their previous experiences and accomplishments, and interest in pursuing a career in Academic Allergy/Immunology.
