Our program's primary goal is to prepare candidates for careers in allergy and 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.
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.
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.
