Our Mission

The University of Chicago’s Allergy and Immunology Program strives to provide superior health care in a compassionate manner, while being mindful of each patient’s dignity and individuality. The program will train residents to become specialists in providing expert medical care for both adult and pediatric patients with allergic and immunologic disorders. The educational program will encompass the core competencies as outlined by the ACGME, through which trainees will achieve the foundation for autonomous practice in the field of Allergy and Immunology. Following completion of this 24-month residency, graduates will be prepared to obtain board certification from the American Board of Allergy and Immunology. Through these methods we will train exemplary physicians in the field of Allergy and Immunology who will serve as leaders among their colleagues and ambassadors for their patients.
