Mayo Clinic's subspecialty Allergy & Immunology Fellowship offers a unique balance of research and clinical training. The program is open to pediatricians and internists interested in allergy and immunology.
The fellowship is designed to be customized, and you are encouraged to plan a curriculum that meets your specific career objectives. If you are interested in a career in clinical allergy and/or clinical immunology, you may select assignments from a broad range of clinical subspecialty electives.
If you are more interested in a career in laboratory research or clinical investigation, you may wish to participate in the clinical research program run by the Allergic Diseases Research Laboratory. During the fellowship you will have at least one year of clinical training in allergy and immunology and at least nine months of laboratory experience in allergy, immunology or pulmonary physiology.
All board eligibility requirements are fulfilled during the first two years of the program. An optional third year offers the opportunity to conduct in-depth research. Clinical experience includes both pediatric allergy/immunology and adult allergy/immunology.
The American Board of Allergy and Immunology, a conjoint group that includes input from the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Internal Medicine, accredits this fellowship.
The Allergy/Immunology Fellowship meets the examination eligibility requirements of the American Board of Allergy and Immunology. It is open to physicians who have successfully completed an accredited pediatric or internal medicine residency program.
Allergists at Mayo Clinic developed the Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Program in 1962. Since then, more than 50 fellows have completed this training program. It is anticipated that one to three trainees will complete this fellowship each year.
