The Allergy and Clinical Immunology Fellowship Program at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics consists of a three year training program that includes both extensive clinical experiences and research training. Applicants must have completed residency training and be board eligible in either Pediatrics or Internal Medicine. Fellows are accepted for a three year commitment with advancement contingent upon a faculty review twice during each year. The Fellowship Program at the University of Wisconsin has been approved by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology and accredited by the ACGME; therefore, fellows completing their training are eligible for board certification in Allergy and Immunology. The program also has a Training Grant from the National Institutes of Health, which provides some of the funding for the research training of the fellows. The program at any time will consist of a total of six to nine full time fellows.
The Allergy and Clinical Immunology Fellowship Program is led by Dr. James Gern, Training Program Director, and Dr. Sujani Kakumanu, Assistant Training Program Director.
The University of Wisconsin Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Training Program offers resources and strategies for achieving the following goals:
- To provide state-of-the-art clinical training in allergy and immunology as it pertains to the management of associated medical disorders. Emphasis will be placed on atopic disorders such as asthma, rhinitis, sinusitis, drug allergy, urticaria and dermatitis. This is complemented with experiences in immune deficiency and autoimmune disease.
- To develop physician subspecialists with a solid foundation in the principles of basic immunology fundamental to understanding and managing clinical disorders.
- To provide fellows with the base for career development in both academic medicine and clinical practice.
