Program Description

The NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) offers a three-year, ACGME-accredited training program in allergy and immunology. This program, open to physicians who are well-grounded in clinical internal medicine or pediatrics, is designed to provide trainees with the high-quality clinical and laboratory skills that will enable them to pursue careers in academic medicine. The core of this clinical fellowship program is the effort devoted to research training and performance of original basic, translational, and/or clinical research. Fellows work under the direct supervision and mentorship of senior NIAID investigators. The goal of the research training is to provide a productive experience leading to the development of successful independent investigators.
