How to Apply

Mount Sinai plans to offer two or three Fellowship positions for the training period starting in 2014. Candidates may have Internal Medicine, Pediatrics or Medicine/Pediatrics background.

Fellows complete a two-year clinical and research Fellowship resulting in board eligibility in Allergy and Immunology. A third year is strongly recommended for Fellows who are interested in careers in academic medicine and who demonstrate sufficient accomplishment and interest to warrant an additional research year.

The emphasis of this program in Allergy and Immunology is the training of future academic leaders, and candidates with research background and continued interest in academic careers will be favored.

The Icahn School of Medicine Program is participating in the ERAS application process and in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). ERAS opens to applicants on July 1, 2013.

The following information will be requested:

  • MyERAS Application
  • Letters of Recommendation (up to four letters including letter from Program Director)
  • Personal Statement
  • CV
  • Medical School Transcript
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation /Dean's Letter
  • Wallet Size Color Photograph

  • ACLS certification
  • COMLEX (Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination) Transcript (Transmitted by the NBOME)
  • ECFMG Status Report (For International Medical Graduates only)

Programs will begin reviewing these applications July 15, 2013 and the NRMP match opens August 1, 2013.

Starting in July and continuing into October 2013, selected candidates will be invited to Mount Sinai to meet the Faculty and Fellows, and to review in person the ongoing clinical and research activities.

For more information on the Mount Sinai faculty, please see the Mount Sinai website. After the interview process, we will select Fellows and enter the match process, which will start October 2013 (approximately). Applicants who are matched to our Program will be informed of their acceptance into our Training Program. As for the NRMP process in other specialties, we expect any Fellow who accepts the position to honor this commitment.
