Mission Statement

The goal of the Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Program at the Icahn School of Medicine is to train interested and highly motivated internists and pediatricians in the specialty of allergy and clinical immunology. The educational mission is to provide a stimulating and comprehensive training experience that will lead to both an understanding and application of the principles of basic immunology to allergic disorders, congenital and acquired immunodeficiency diseases, organ and bone marrow transplantation, and autoimmune diseases. This includes developing an understanding of the clinical and laboratory assessment of allergic and immune system disorders, having a firsthand opportunity to conduct research projects, and attending and presenting original data at national meetings in allergy and immunology. The ultimate goal is to produce physicians/physician scientists who will take an active role in the expansion of allergy and clinical immunology as a growing specialty by developing careers in academic medicine, biotechnology, and patient care.
