Major Goals of Training Program
In 1958, the Allergy/Immunology training program was started by I. Leonard Bernstein MD in the Department of Medicine at University of Cincinnati College of Medicine; and soon thereafter, Dr. Joseph E. Ghory started the pediatric allergy training program at CCHMC. This long-standing collaboration between the Children’s Hospital and the University of Cincinnati continues to this day, allowing reciprocal training of all adult and pediatric track fellows. The Allergy/Immunology Fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s offers robust clinical and research training. Clinical training occurs in both inpatient and outpatient settings and extensively covers all disorders of allergy (e.g., asthma, food allergy), eosinophilic disorders, occupational lung diseases and primary immune deficiencies. A great strength of our program is the large patient referral basis for both common and rare immunologic disorders, such as primary immune deficiency and eosinophilic disorders.

Our fellows conduct innovative research in a wide variety of areas, including clinical research trials, with clinical, translational and basic science research mentors. Fellows interested in a career in research may apply for additional years of training beyond the two years of ACGME-accredited fellowship in our Advanced Allergy/Immunology Research Training Fellowship. Advanced research fellows may earn master's or doctorate degrees in areas such as epidemiology, clinical research and immunobiology.

Program Objectives
Our mission is to train fellows to become leaders in academic Allergy/Immunology. Through our program's mentorship and curriculum, our fellows:
Acquire expert-level clinical competence in the care of children and adults with routine and complex allergic/immunologic disorders
Conduct and publish cutting-edge clinical, translational and/or basic research studies
Fully engage in the practice of life-long scholarship through graduate-level coursework, Allergy/Immunology didactics and/or oral/poster presentations of clinical and research topics

Major Goals of Training Program
This program provides well-balanced training in adult and pediatric Allergy and Immunology. There are 21 staff physicians in our program who have a range of clinical and scientific interests. We have a busy outpatient practice and ongoing research activities, as well as a busy inpatient Allergy/Immunology consultation service. We foster development of clinical skills that include management of complex cases, and the ability to approach problems from an investigative standpoint. There are opportunities for elective time in Pulmonary, Rheumatology, Infectious Diseases, Dermatology, and other areas if desired. A minimum of 8 months of protected research time is dedicated to completion of research with a mentor in a basic science discipline or full-time program faculty. Successful initiation, completion, and presentation of a research project is expected of all fellows. Our program provides excellent training for individuals who seek academic careers in Allergy/Immunology.

Major Goals of Training Program
Our program provides balanced training in both adult and pediatric Allergy and Immunology. There are 12 faculty members in our program with a wide variety of both clinical and research interests. We have a large number of clinics each week at both of the medical centers including multiple multispecialty clinics. Each fellow has a pediatric and adult continuity clinic weekly during their training. Second year fellows have the opportunity to do electives with a wide variety of other divisions at both the adult and pediatric hospital settings. Fellows also have the opportunity to learn how to perform rhinoscopy. There is a Diagnostic Immunology Lab at Nationwide Children's Hospital which is an excellent resource for the trainees.   

All of our fellows participate in scholarly activity and have the opportunity to work on projects in basic science, translational and clinical research both with faculty within our division and faculty outside of the fellowship program depending on the trainees areas of interest. Our fellows are also involved with multiple QI projects throughout their training. The expectation and goal is that all fellows present their work at local, regional, and national meetings and publish the data in scientific journals.

Major Goals of Training Program
 The Allergy/Immunology fellowship at University of Cincinnati Medical Center (UCMC) offers a robust clinical training and educational experience.  Clinical training consists of both inpatient and outpatient settings, with 3 unique sites for adult training, including UCMC, the Cincinnati VA Medical Center, and the Bernstein Allergy Group private practice, which is closely associated with the College of Medicine.  Pediatric cross training occurs at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) and incorporates primary immune deficiency as well as general pediatric allergic disease.  Our patient encounters extensively cover all common disorders of allergy (e.g., asthma, food allergy, eczema, drug allergy and allergy rhinitis/conjunctivitis).  A great strength of our program is the large patient referral basis for rare disorders, such as primary immune deficiency and eosinophilic disorders. Historically a collaborative fellowship, the trainees from both the pediatric program at CCHMC and the internal medicine program at UCMC attend joint didactic sessions and participate in shared clinical experiences through their scheduled rotations.  All fellows participate in scholarly activity and generate publications during their fellowship.   Fellows have the opportunity to work on basic science, translational, or clinical research projects and present their work at national meetings.  Fellows interested in a career in research may have the opportunity to participate in additional years of training beyond the 2 years of ACGME accredited fellowship.
