Education & Training
Johns Hopkins Asthma & Allergy Center
The Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology is located in the Johns Hopkins Asthma & Allergy Center, adjacent to the Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The Bayview Medical Center, formerly Baltimore City Hospital and then the Francis Scott Key Hospital, has been a major teaching center for medical school undergraduates and house staff for many years and became wholly owned by Johns Hopkins in 1985. The 130,000 square foot Asthma & Allergy Center facility, which opened in 1989, also includes the Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine’s research facilities, and the Division of Rheumatology's Vasculitis Center. The three divisions operate outpatient clinics alongside clinical research, bringing these activities into the same building with laboratory research.
Some clinical and research activities of the training program take place in other divisions of the University and at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Department of Pediatrics runs three half-day clinic sessions devoted to pediatric allergy and one session for evaluation of immunodeficiency states. These clinics provide an excellent training milieu for fellows in Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
Consultative services in allergy and clinical immunology are provided for inpatients in both the Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
Elective time in allied clinical specialties can also be arranged if desired. Pulmonary medicine, rheumatology, and immunology-oriented dermatology are frequent choices. Training in otolaryngology, general dermatology, and immunodeficiency can also be provided as elective opportunities at the Johns Hopkins Hospital or Bayview Medical Center.
The training program is conducted at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. These hospitals have a varied patient population that allows exposure to a wide array of allergy and clinical immunology problems. Each hospital has a unique character and attracts referrals for treatment and evaluation of a broad spectrum of allergic and immunologic of disease processes. The experiences at the different hospitals and outpatient clinics complement each other well and the physicians have unique clinical strengths and the patient care at each institution has a distinct emphasis as described below. The presence of more than 70 different specialty-training programs at these institutions further endorses the overall environment of the pursuit of knowledge.
Each of the hospitals has an active allergy/immunology outpatient service, and each hospital is engaged in teaching of Hopkins medical students and house officers. Both hospitals sponsor weekly multidisciplinary conferences in which clinical problems are reviewed. There are program-wide conferences where clinical fellows present their most interesting cases for discussion and a weekly research conference where faculty present research topics relevant to asthma and allergic diseases.
