Along with its research and patient care focus, the Division of Immunology, Allergy and Rheumatology is committed to teaching.
Medical student education consists of a third-year clerkship and an eight-week intensive clinical experience elective in arthritis/allergy.
The elective course prepares fourth-year students to perform primary care management, including the diagnosis and treatment of common rheumatologic and allergic medical disorders.
Training of residents consists of a one-month rotation with ambulatory and inpatient consultations as well as structured didactic sessions.
The rheumatology/immunology rotation is one of the most highly sought after rotations by residents due to the organization, the dedicated lecture series and the faculty teaching. The division also offers a one-month rotation focusing on allergy/immunology.
For specialized training, the division offers separate fellowship training programs in allergy/immunology and rheumatology. Both training programs are partially funded through NIH T32 training grant awards that prepare fellows for careers in research and academic medicine.
