The goal of the Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is to train highly motivated internists and pediatricians to be leaders in the field of Allergy and 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 atopic disorders, congenital and acquired immunodeficiency diseases, and inflammatory diseases. This includes developing an understanding of the clinical and laboratory assessment of allergic and immune system disorders, engaging in research projects, and presenting original data at national meetings. Our ultimate goal is to produce clinicians and physician scientists who will take an active role in the expansion of allergy and clinical immunology as a growing specialty by developing careers in patient care, academic medicine, and/or biopharmaceutical industry.
Allergy and Clinical Immunology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital
The Fellowship Training Program in Allergy and Immunology includes cross training within 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 atopic and immunologic disorders. Mount Sinai offers two or three fellowship positions each academic year. Candidates from Internal Medicine, Pediatrics or Medicine/Pediatrics core residency programs may apply.
We offer a two-year program designed to train fellows to excel as clinical allergist/immunologist with experience in basic science, translational and/or clinical research. The first year focuses on clinical care and the second year comprises additional elective time (dermatology, ENT, rheumatology, pulmonary, private practice), research and other scholarly activities. The clinical experience includes evaluation of a variety of common disorders ranging from anaphylaxis, angioedema, adverse drug reactions, food allergy, urticaria, allergic rhinitis, and asthma to those less common such as systemic mastocytosis, hereditary angioedema, and immune deficiencies. Inpatient experience is gained through consultations at the Mount Sinai Hospital and provides a unique opportunity to assess challenging cases. A three-year fellowship program is designed for fellows with a strong interest in a career as a physician scientist and have demonstrated sufficient accomplishment to warrant a dedicated research year.

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Program participates in the ERAS application process. Applicants can find a checklist of required information on the ERAS site and submit an application.
In September, selected candidates will be invited to interview for a fellowship position, meet faculty and fellows, and tour our clinical and research facilities. Candidates will be ranked in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and receive the results of the match as per NRMP notification date. As for the NRMP process in other specialties, we expect any fellow who accepts the position to honor this commitment.
