Allergy & Clinical Immunology Fellowship

The Allergy & Immunology Fellowship Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Our mission is to train the next generation of academic leaders and physician-scientists addressing the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of allergic and immune-mediated disease. We advance the career development of our fellows through outstanding clinical and educational programs, our diverse and highly collaborative research environment, team mentoring, and strong institutional support. Our program has made pioneering advances in Allergy and Immunology for more than 50 years.

We are proud of the success of our graduates, who include more than 90 full Professors, four past Presidents of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, and many prominent young faculty around the country. Over 75% of our graduates in the past ten years hold full-time faculty positions at US Medical Schools, most of whom are actively engaged in research and 50% of whom are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). We look forward to continuing this tradition and developing the next generation of innovators in science and medicine. We are strongly committed to supporting the development of researchers from diverse backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine and biomedical science.  We are look forward to reviewing your application!

Program Overview

We accept outstanding residents who have completed training in either Pediatrics or Medicine into our ACGME-accredited program. The first 12 months are focused on clinical training across the inpatient and outpatient settings and include rotations through our Severe Asthma Program, Mastocytosis Center, Drug Hypersensitivity and Desensitization Center, Immunodeficiency Clinic, pediatric Allergy/Immunology clinics, food allergy clinics, and Aspirin-Exacerbated Respiratory Disease (AERD) Center. Fellows will manage patients with a wide spectrum of disorders including primary immunodeficiencies, autoimmune disorders, hereditary angioedema, anaphylaxis, food allergy, eosinophilic disease, drug allergy, asthma, and mastocytosis. See more on our clinical program.

In transitioning to the research component (supported for up to 3 years by an NIH training grant), fellows can pursue a broad variety of approaches including cellular and molecular immunology, genomics and metabolomics, clinical epidemiology and population science, bioinformatics, and clinical trials. See how our Current Fellows are taking advantage of the unparalleled research and training opportunities available in the Longwood Academic and Medical area, home to leading institutions such as Harvard Medical School, Channing Division of Network Medicine, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Dana Farber Cancer Institute, in addition to Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
