Overview

The Allergy and Immunology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic trains exemplary physician specialists who have mastered the necessary medical knowledge, clinical skills, teaching, and research competencies to function as independent experts in the field of allergy and immunology.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Exposure to a very broad spectrum of routine and complex adult and pediatric cases from both near and far locations
  • Excellent one-on-one supervision by our diverse staff of allergists-immunologists and support from a superb group of clinicians, researchers, and educators representing all major specialties
  • Half of your training experience is evenly split between adult and pediatric specialty clinics
  • Weekly continuity clinics (for following your own adult and pediatric patients in addition to the specialty clinics)
  • Thoroughly rewarding, nine-month research block with dedicated mentors and ample opportunities for both clinical and basic research
  • Opportunities for basic science investigation into disease mechanisms, particularly those that are eosinophil-mediated, are also available in the laboratory of the world-renowned Mayo investigator, Dr. Hirohito Kita
  • Elective rotations are available in otolaryngology, transplant, immunology lab, immunodeficiency clinic, community allergy, gastroenterology, adult and pediatric pulmonology, and rheumatology
  • Mastery of the six core competencies as set forth by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is required: Patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice

Director's welcome

Our committed staff, diverse patient populations, strong institutional support, and track record of clinical excellence ensure exposure to the full breadth and depth of diseases cared for by allergists/immunologists. Ample time is allowed for patient exams and for staffing; limited time is spent on activities that don’t directly enhance the educational experience.

Program history

The Allergy and Immunology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, began in July 2017. The first fellow graduated in 2019.

This fellowship, while separate from the original Mayo Clinic program in Rochester, Minnesota, shares a weekly videoconference with Rochester and related programs in Jacksonville, Florida, and Mayo-affiliated practice sites elsewhere in the Midwestern United States, as well as with our partners at Phoenix Children's Hospital. Expertise is shared among all the sites using this format and many other less-formal avenues.

Mayo Clinic allergists play a large role in patient care, research, and education. They serve on many editorial and advisory committees and have served as presidents of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, as well as the American Board of Allergy and Immunology.
