The Allergy / Immunology Fellowship is a collaborative effort of Cincinnati Children’s and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine (UCCOM). Established in 1958, the Allergy / Immunology Fellowship is a three-year combined program with both Pediatric and Internal Medicine tracks, and the Pediatric track features diverse clinical and research training.
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).
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.
Fellow research projects may be basic, translational or clinical, and our program's research
and fellows conduct innovative research in a wide variety of areas. There are numerous opportunities for further scholarship, and many of our fellows earn advanced degrees in areas such as epidemiology, clinical research and immunobiology
during the fellowship
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
