Fellowship Training

The IU School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics Division of Pulmonology, Allergy and Sleep Medicine offers two ACGME-accredited fellowship programs.

Allergy/Immunology Fellowship

Lead by Girish Vitalpur, MD, program director, the Allergy/Immunology Fellowship Program at IU School of Medicine is an ACGME-accredited program that offers a wide range of clinical and research experiences to prepare fellows for practice in academic allergy as a clinician, educator or physician scientist. Current research includes projects in peanut allergy, airway microbiome in relation to airway inflammation, and local pollen changes.

Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship

The fellowship in Pediatric Pulmonology at IU School of Medicine and Riley Hospital for Children is strongly committed to the training of academic pediatric specialists to assure the best possible care for infants and children with lung disease and to encourage the teaching and research that promote advanced care in the future.  This program trains future researchers who can apply knowledge of basic translational and clinical science to the treatment and prevention of child respiratory diseases.
