Allergy-Immunology Fellowship Program

Our fellowship is a large, multidisciplinary program with several interdepartmental collaborations in clinical care as well as clinical and bench research, which take place at the Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.  The goals of the Allergy & Immunology Division at Northwestern University in the Department of Medicine are to train internists and pediatricians to become leaders in the field of Allergy-Immunology who are highly competent in diagnosing and managing patients with a broad spectrum of allergic and immunologic conditions, and in educating patients, their families and health care professionals.  In addition, the program encourages trainees to pursue careers in academic allergy and immunology.

Further program details, including our Housestaff Manual and a sample training contract, are available on our McGaw Medical Center Graduate Education site.  Likewise, we recommend reading through our FREIDA listing (program number 020-16-31-016).
