The University of Arizona Allergy and Immunology Fellowship program is ACGME accredited. Training is divided into clinical, research and educational activities—encompassing 50 percent, 25 percent and 25 percent respectively—distributed over 24 months of training. We strive to train outstanding clinicians, successful academicians and noted educators.
Our curriculum includes outpatient and inpatient clinical rotations for pediatric and adult patients at the Banner – University Medical Center Tucson campus and Banner’s Wilmot Pediatric Subspecialty clinics. Elective rotations are available in many subspecialty areas. Our curriculum emphasizes active fellow engagement in both hypothesis-driven research projects and quality improvement activities.
Didactic/Interactive Learning Activities are framed by the ACGME Allergy-Immunology Program Requirements, Core Competencies and foregrounded by topic recommendations from the American Board of Allergy. Our diverse University of Arizona Health Sciences clinical and basic science faculty members support clinical rotations, teach core curriculum topics and provide research mentorship. In addition, the fellows may attend several local/state and national meetings of our medical societies, including the Arizona Allergy Society, ACAAI and AAAAI annual meetings.
