The IU School of Medicine Allergy/ Immunology Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited two-year program that prepares physicians in the expert care and management of allergy and immunology issues for both children and adults. Allergy/Immunology fellows acquire a wide range of clinical and research experiences and are prepared for academic careers as a physician-scientist or clinician-educator. The fellowship produces specialists who excel in patient care skills and diagnostic acumen and who know how to analyze and apply research. On completion of the fellowship, the physician is eligible to sit for the Board Certification Exam of the American Board of Allergy and Immunology.
The IU Allergy/Immunology Fellowship program is based in the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology, Allergy, and Sleep Medicine, at Riley Hospital for Children.
