The goal of the Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai 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.
Allergy and Clinical Immunology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital
The 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 program is conducted at The Mount Sinai Hospital, and provides exposure to both adult and pediatric allergic and immunologic disorders. Mount Sinai continues to offer two or three fellowship positions each year. 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.

We seek motivated candidates who are genuinely interested in understanding the science of allergic and immunologic disease and the application of new principles in the treatment of these disorders.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Program participates in the ERAS application process and in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Applicants can find a checklist of required information on the ERAS site.
Starting in September, 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. After the interview process, we will select Fellows and enter the match process. 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. If you have any questions concerning the status of your application, or additional questions about our Fellowship Training Program that are not answered in the accompanying program outline, you may contact Ruth Hernandez, the Fellowship Training Program Administrator, as indicated in the Contact Us box.
