Our division provides residents with patient-care experiences and conferences that help develop their knowledge in the fields of allergy, immunology and rheumatology.
As an internal medicine resident, you can enhance your training by participating in our residency elective, conducting research in our division and attending our conferences.
In this inpatient and outpatient experience, you will obtain focused medical histories and physical exams, formulate assessments and treatment plans, and discuss these with the allergy or immunology attending. You will see all new consults on the service, which you will then discuss with the fellow and/or allergy and immunology attending. Through this rotation, you will gain a familiarity with how asthma, allergies and immunological disorders present clinically, including the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of important emergency conditions such as anaphylaxis and severe unresponsive bronchial asthma. Your training will also cover triggers that can exacerbate allergic and immunological conditions, interactions between chronic and acute conditions, and the use and limitations of laboratory testing and medications.
