The Indiana University School of Medicine Allergy/ Immunology Fellowship Program strives to educate young physicians in the expert care and management of allergy and immunology issues, for children and adults. We provide a wide range of clinical and research experiences so that fellows are prepared for academic and private practice careers. The Allergy Program is based in the Section of Pediatric Pulmonology, Allergy and Sleep Medicine at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.
The Indiana University School of Medicine Allergy/ Immunology Fellowship Program was accredited by the ACGME in 2017. Fellows rotate through clinics in Indianapolis, Carmel and Lafayette, Indiana, providing diverse training opportunities. The Allergy faculty participates in multi-disciplinary clinics at Riley Hospital, such as the Gastrointestinal Eosinophilic Digestive Disease Clinic and High-Risk Asthma Clinic. The faculty are also involved in the Indiana Joint Asthma Coalition, the Indiana Allergy and Immunology Society, committees of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI), and the Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) Clinical Network.
Our research and clinical programs are growing in scope and recognition. Riley has been designated a Center of Clinical Excellence by FARE. Current research includes projects in peanut allergy; airway microbiome in relation to airway inflammation; local pollen changes; and immune deficiency assessment. Dr Kirsten Kloepfer received the AAAAI Faculty Development Award in 2017. There are over fifteen fellowship programs at Riley Hospital, providing a broad range of mentors and educational opportunities.
