Major Goals of Training Program
The Allergy and Immunology Fellowship trains exemplary physician specialists who have mastered the necessary medical knowledge, clinical skills, teaching, and research competences to function as independent experts in the field of Allergy and Immunology.  

To accomplish these goals, two nationally and internationally recognized organizations, Mayo Clinic in Arizona and Phoenix Children’s Hospital have partnered to share their knowledge, resources, and diverse clinical experience to ensure the best possible training in the field of Allergy and Immunology. During the two-year fellowship, 50% of the training experience is devoted to clinical practice, evenly divided between adult and pediatric specialty clinics; 25% of the training is devoted to research projects, and 25% is devoted to educational pursuits.  In addition to the specialty clinics, fellows have weekly continuity clinics for following their own adult and pediatric patients.

Fellows will be exposed to a very broad spectrum of routine and complex adult and pediatric cases from near and far locations.  There is excellent one-on-one supervision by our diverse staff of Allergists-Immunologists and support from a superb group of clinicians, researchers and educators representing all major specialties.

There are ample opportunities for both clinical and basic research and very dedicated mentors to ensure that the nine month research block is a thoroughly rewarding experience for trainees.

There are required rotations in Dermatology, Otolaryngology, Transplant, Immunology Lab and Immunodeficiency Clinic. There are elective rotations available in those same specialties, as well as Community Allergy, Gastroenterology, Adult and/or Pediatric Pulmonology and Rheumatology.

Major Goal of Training Program:
Our training program seeks to train internists and pediatricians to become leaders in the field of Allergy / Immunology.

The University of Arizona is a referral center for a broad patient base throughout the Southwest and Mexico. We treat the full spectrum of allergic and immunologic conditions in both children and adults, and therefore seek to train physicians who are highly competent in diagnosing and managing these patients. Further, we emphasize educating patients, their families and other health care professionals about these diseases.

The University of Arizona Allergy and Immunology program is proud to be affiliated with the Arizona Asthma and Airway Disease Research Center. This fully-developed and internationally recognized clinical research program provides infrastructure for clinical and translational research studies focusing on respiratory diseases. In addition, our collaboration with researchers within the state-of-the-art University of Arizona Bio5 Institute allows diverse opportunity for development of research skills and projects. Trainees will benefit from hands-on research experiences, will formally present research at national meetings, and will prepare manuscripts for peer-reviewed publication.
