Greetings and welcome to the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Medicine Division of Allergy & Clinical Immunology Training Program Webpage. We encourage you to browse through our site, which contains up-to-date information for those physicians interested in fellowship training for a career in discovery.
We are one of the largest allergy and clinical immunology divisions in the nation. Over an incredibly rich over forty-year history, our fellowship program has produced internationally recognized authorities on, and fundamental advances in, the areas of pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of allergic rhinitis, immunotherapy, asthma, food allergy, anaphylaxis, drug allergy, eosinophilia and urticaria. We pride ourselves in doing translational research, and we are also known for our work on human cell biology, genetics and genomics, and animal models of allergic and other forms of inflammation. The minimum duration of Allergy and Immunology Fellowship is 24 months, but most choose to train for three years. Twelve months of rigorous clinical training take place in the first two years. Outstanding teaching comes from clinician-educators at both Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center teaching hospitals as well as from superb faculty across the School of Medicine in selected courses. The net result is a graduate who is well prepared for the Allergy and Immunology board exam and who is eminently qualified for an academic and clinical career.
As you explore our website, we hope you appreciate the depth and breadth of the Hopkins Program. Hopkins investigators receive more NIH dollars each year than most other institutions in the country, and this is true of our faculty as well. Through collaboration with world-renowned research faculty, our trainees acquire the requisite tools in genetics, genomics, proteomics, molecular biology, cell biology, basic immunology, physiology and clinical and translational research to perform productive cutting-edge investigation in fields related to allergy and clinical immunology.
Once again, welcome to the Hopkins Allergy & Clinical Immunology Training Program. Please enjoy our website and email or call with questions.
