Our Fellowship Program offers fellows the opportunity to choose from several focused tracks to gain expertise in specific areas of Allergy and Immunology care.
The University of Pennsylvania Allergy & Immunology Program has a separate GME designation and match from the Pediatric (CHOP) Allergy & Immunology program. We accept Internal Medicine and Medicine/Pediatrics applicants. Penn A & I fellows do rotate in the pediatric A & I clinics and receive comprehensive cross-training, so that they are well-prepared to care for both adult and pediatric patients.
Please note that "fellow" and "resident" are used interchangeably. The field of allergy and immunology encompasses a broad spectrum of disorders including the common IgE-mediated allergic diseases, immunodeficiency, drug reactions and autoimmune disorders.
Fellows are exposed to the spectrum of disorders through personal patient contact in both outpatient and inpatient settings, as well as lectures, conferences and other didactic teaching.
A thorough clinical experience in allergy involves extensive outpatient experience. In this manner, the trainee will develop specialized skills that help insure a consultative role in the competitive environment. Therefore, special clinics devoted to aspects of the allergy and immunology fields have been organized. There is also exposure to training from members of the Departments of Otorhinolaryngology and Dermatology.
Research training involves hands-on experience, instruction in study design, data and statistical analysis and guidance in preparing data for presentation and publication.
We value the importance of physician well-being and are dedicated to engaging fellows in discussion pertaining to health and wellness. We encourage fellows to participate in available wellness and burn-out lectures and discussions, and strategies to improve if needed.
