Fellowship Highlights


Children's Mercy Hospital provides a two-year fellowship program in Allergy and Immunology with the possibility of a third year of research training. We have a 50-year history that offers comprehensive training in the field of allergy-immunology to prepare fellows for careers in private practice or academic medicine. The fellowship includes:

  • An opportunity to treat a diverse patient population and perform clinical research in a variety of disciplines.

  • Fellows are involved in teaching medical students who rotate in the clinic and participate in the didactics for the medical student core curriculum.

  • Collaboration between allergy-immunology and other sections in the area of food and drug allergies. The majority of research time is in the first year to allow ample time for research project completion and presentation of work at national meetings.

Fellows have opportunities to treat a diverse patient population and perform clinical research, basic research, clinical pharmacology and environmental assessments. Fellows will participate in ongoing research in the genetics of asthma, mold and environmental allergies, as well as disease outcomes.

Our facility provides comprehensive care to a multi-state area including Missouri and Kansas. We have faculty who are board-certified allergist-immunologists as well as PhD researchers involved in fellowship education.
