The program is approved to accept three fellows per year. The following criteria will be used for selection of candidates to receive interviews for the position:
- Satisfactory completion or anticipated completion of an ACGME and/or AACOM Accredited Internal Medicine and/or Pediatric Clinical Residency Program in the United States.
- Certification or anticipated eligibility for the American Board of Internal Medicine and/or Pediatrics.
- Meet the mandatory institutional selection criteria as outlined in the GME Clinical Program Trainee Selection Policy.
- Demonstrated commitment to the field of Allergy and Clinical Immunology in the form of scholarly publications, leadership positions, volunteer roles, and research endeavors.
- Satisfactory letters of recommendation from the Program Director and two faculty members in their residency program of origin.
Selected candidates will be invited to virtually view the facilities and meet with both clinical and research faculty as well as current program fellows. Ranking of candidates will subsequently be based upon a candidate’s previous accomplishments, commitment to the field of allergy, likelihood of successful completion of our program, and interactions during the interview day.
We are committed to a policy of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for all persons regardless of race, sex, color, religion, creed, national origin or ancestry, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability or armed forces/veteran status.
Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) only. In your ERAS application, please include a personal statement, your curriculum vitae, and copies of your ECFMG Certificate and USMLE scores, if applicable. In addition, arrange to have your dean's letter, three letters of recommendation (one of which should be from the Chief of Staff or Program Director), and your medical school transcripts sent to our office through ERAS no later than August 15. Applications to our program made later than August 15 will not be considered.
Once the ERAS application is complete, the information is forwarded to the Allergy and Clinical Immunology Faculty Selection Committee for review. Faculty members of the Selection Committee then complete a written evaluation of each candidate’s application in preparation for selection for an interview.
Selected candidates will be invited to view the facilities and meet with both clinical and research faculty, as well as current program residents. Each interviewer will evaluate the candidate and our Faculty Selection Committee will then rank candidates in order of desirability. Only those candidates who seem to be most suited for training at this institution will be ranked on the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) list that is submitted by the program.
