Message from the Director

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Training Program at The Mount Sinai Hospital. I am proud to be running this highly competitive and highly desired fellowship program. Our mission is to train fellows in the management of complex allergic and immunologic disorders so they can build a highly successful career in either an academic or private practice setting. 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.

For the last 25 years, our training program has provided our trainees the ability to care for, learn from and treat an exceptionally diverse patient population. Our fellows’ learning sits at the nexus of a rigorous clinical training and a research-focused program. With many inpatient and outpatient sites throughout the Icahn School of Medicine and the seven campuses of the Mount Sinai Health System, our fellows have more opportunities to build a beginning practice. Specialty clinics and programs, including the Jaffe Food Allergy Program and the Primary Immune Deficiencies Clinic, provide unparalleled learning experiences for future clinical immunologists.

Our fellows participate in a number of research opportunities, ranging from basic immunology to translational projects in allergic or immunologic disease as well as clinical research. All fellows have many chances to work with our world-class faculty on basic, clinical or translational research as we believe that these experiences are essential to our fellowship training. Common areas of research include: primary immunodeficiency, food allergy, chronic urticaria, drug allergy, and asthma. Our fellows collaborate extensively with other physicians and departments on numerous research projects, ensuring that fellows can be involved with several projects.

If you have any questions about our training program, please feel free to contact me or Ruth Hernandez ,our administrative assistant, at 212-659 9261.
