Training Program

Overview

Icahn School of Medicine Fellowship Training Program in Allergy and Immunology is based in the Division of Clinical Immunology (Department of Medicine) and the Division of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology (Department of Pediatrics). The training program is conducted exclusively at the Mount Sinai Health System, and provides exposure to both adult and pediatric allergic and immunologic disorders.

Two- or Three-Year Fellowships Offered

Our ACGME-accredited program offers two or three year fellowships. Fellows will be eligible to sit for the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (ABAI) certification exam upon satisfactory completion of the program requirements. The fellowship currently supports two to three fellows per year and is open to candidates trained in pediatrics, internal medicine, or med-peds.

Program Structure

Our program's primary goal is to prepare candidates for careers in allergy and/or immunology by offering a broad-based experience in clinical medicine and scientific inquiry. The structure of the program consists of one primarily clinical year followed by one or two years mainly devoted to a substantial research project emphasizing a basic science, translational, or clinical subject- with dedicated time for clinical electives. All fellows in our program, regardless of career interests, are expected to present at a national meeting and to publish results from their research activities throughout the duration of fellowship.

The Divisions of Clinical Immunology and Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, by virtue of being part of a large teaching hospital located in the heart of New York City, are fortunate to offer an abundance of excellent clinical exposure to a wide array of allergic and immunologic disorders. The Mount Sinai Health System has more than 1,000 inpatient beds and several outpatient clinics that present abundant referral opportunities for fellows.

Focus Areas

Our fellowship is intended to provide a thorough training experience comprising of both clinical and research activities. Ultimately, many fellows develop individualized, more focused areas of clinical or research interest in which they can hone a specific skill set and become productive clinicians and scientific investigators. Graduates from our Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Program have gone on to successfully become ABAI board-certified, with careers ranging from private practice to full-time careers in academic medicine.
