Major Goals of Training Program
Our three-year Allergy/Immunology Fellowship Program features strong clinical and research training. Although we have both Pediatric and Internal Medicine tracks, the curriculum is fully integrated. Cross training (20% minimum) in pediatric and adult medicine extends over the length of the training. The inpatient experience is localized primarily to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) and University Hospital Medical Center (UHMC). The ambulatory environments include:

• Hospital-based Allergy/Immunology clinics at CCHMC, UHMC and the Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC)
• Expansive Primary Immunodeficiency clinic at CCHMC
• Clinical electives in Bone Marrow Transplant, Pulmonary, Rheumatology, Dermatology and Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat) at CCHMC and/or UHMC
• Allergy/ Immunology private practice rotations

The three-year fellowship includes two years of research and opportunities for additional academic coursework. We seek fellows with strong academic backgrounds, prior research experience and who desire careers in academic medicine and research. Our 20 clinical and research faculty conduct innovative basic, translational and clinical research, and we offer separate Basic, Translational and Clinical research tracks. Additionally, the Clinical research track offers the opportunity to earn a Master's Degree in Molecular Epidemiology from the Department of Environmental Health, Epidemiology and Biostatistic and/or Clinical Trials, enabling graduating fellows to conduct independent clinical and translational research.
