Major Goals of Training Program
This is an established program that provides well-balanced training in adult and pediatric allergy and immunology at one unified site at a major university medical school and hospital. The program has a strong base of outpatient clinical allergy-immunology. An emphasis on breadth of training is evident in numerous opportunities to spend elective time or develop a combined program in closely aligned disciplines such as Rheumatology and Pediatric and Adult Pulmonology. A minimum of 24 months of protected research time can be spent with one of numerous mentors in basic science immunology, immunopathology, or with full-time program faculty. Successful initiation, completion, and presentation of a research project is expected of all trainees. Some of our graduates in recent years have elected to pursue clinical careers upon completion, but the opportunity and funding is available for extended research time for those interested in academic careers, and for entering a new modified Yale PhD program.
