The fellowship has a combined structure with two tracks: Pediatrics and Internal Medicine. The fellowship training is three years, divided into one clinical year and two research years. The clinical year includes attendance in Allergy / Immunology clinics and consulting on the inpatient services. To widen the clinical exposure, the fellows have elective rotations of one to two months in laboratory immunology, stem cell transplant, dermatology, pulmonary medicine and the pulmonary function laboratory, rheumatology and otolaryngology. The cross-training consists of a full day per week in the outpatient clinics of the opposite primary specialty for one year or a half of a day per week spread over two years, leaving 80-90 percent of the time during the two years of training dedicated to research. Didactic and research meetings are an integral part of the program.
The training program is structured so that three years are spent in clinical care and basic research relevant to allergic and immunologic diseases with responsibilities increasing over the three years. The goals and objectives of our program are aligned with requirements of the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (ABAI) and with guidelines of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) regarding training and education.
There are multiple clinical, research and scientific conferences held every week within the division, providing an excellent environment for research and clinical training. Other opportunities exist to attend and participate in conferences that are relevant to allergy and immunology throughout both Cincinnati Children’s and the University of Cincinnati.
Allergy / immunology fellows are responsible for teaching and lecturing residents and medical students rotating through the allergy / immunology services. Patient teaching is also emphasized. Fellows become skillful at presenting clinical topics in allergy and immunology, articles in journal clubs and research data to fellow trainees and faculty.
The Allergy/Immunology Fellowship is currently in its third, five-year cycle of funding from a T32 award (T32AI060515, 9/1/2014-8/31/2019) granted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
The Pediatric track of the Allergy / Immunology Fellowship Program is based in the Division of Allergy and Immunology at Cincinnati Children’s.
The Internal Medicine track of the Allergy / Immunology Fellowship Program is based in the Division of Immunology, Allergy and Rheumatology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
Each year the Allergy / Immunology Fellowship Program recognizes one of its faculty for their commitment and contribution to mentoring and the program with the Faculty Teaching Award.
Clinical training involves experience in Allergy / Immunology outpatient, inpatient and consultation services; rotation through the Pediatric Immunodeficiency Clinic; and cross-training in adult and pediatric allergy.
Intensive research training is offered in three programmatic areas: the Experimental Research track, the Clinical Research track and the Healthcare Transformation Research track.
The Pediatric track of the fellowship offers combined fellowship training with either Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine or Pediatric Rheumatology.
During the research portion of the fellowship, fellows may choose to pursue a master’s or doctorate degree in the following disciplines:
