Goals and Objectives
The mission of the Indiana University School of Medicine Allergy/ Immunology Fellowship Program is to train specialists in Allergy and Immunology who will provide expert medical care for adults and children with allergic and immunologic disorders. This program will try to produce a specialist who will not only excel in patient care skills and diagnostic acumen but also know how to analyze and apply research. Trainees will have 50% of their time devoted to clinical training, 25% devoted to pursuing research interests of their choice, and 25% for educational purposes.
The fellow will be expected to act as a principal investigator in at least one research project, in which he/she takes the primary responsibility for designing and carrying out a study, analyzing the data, presenting findings at regional and/or national meetings, and preparing a manuscript draft for publication. Fellows who succeed in these goals will be positioned for a career in academic medicine and clinical practice. On completion of the fellowship, the physician will be eligible to sit for the Board Certification Exam of the American Board of Allergy and Immunology.
