Allergy and Immunology Fellowship

The allergy and immunology fellowship is a two-year, Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved program offered jointly by Rush University Medical Center and John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

Our program provides extensive experience in patient care, teaching and research. Fellows build a strong sub-specialized foundation with training in classical allergy as well as basic and clinical immunology.

You’ll be supervised by faculty at both Rush and Stroger, and treating an adult and pediatric patient population with varying socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds and a variety of conditions makes for a meaningful training experience.

Our fellows commonly address the following:

  • Rhinitis
  • Asthma and other respiratory problems
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Food allergy
  • Atopic Dermatitis
  • Contact Dermatitis
  • Urticaria
  • Primary and acquired immunodeficiencies
  • Autoimmune diseases
