Welcome to the University of Kansas Medical Center
Division of Allergy and Immunology!
The Allergy and Immunology fellowship at the University of Kansas Medical Center is an ACGME accredited two year program in an academic practice setting. We currently have four board certified Allergy and Immunology physicians, two of which are also board certified in Rheumatology. In addition, we have a PhD researcher with a working laboratory who is actively involved in fellowship education.
The University of Kansas Medical Center is a 575-bed academic tertiary care referral center for the Kansas City metropolitan area, western Missouri, and eastern Kansas. Although KU Medical Center is a private hospital, we have the luxury of a diverse population of patients. KU Medical Center features a robust system-wide electronic medical record system, O2, a product from Epic Systems Corporation.
Our clinics consist of adult and pediatric clinics located onsite in the new state-of-the-art Medical Office Building attached to the KU Medical Center hospital. Each clinic offers a wide range of training models and patient profiles to allow for outstanding cross-training. The clinics are staffed with superb ancillary staff to ensure the best in patient care and clinic efficiency. We also offer a variety of electives based on the specific needs of each fellow in training. Inpatient hospital consults are also conducted onsite to assure a well-rounded experience in allergy and immunology.
We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic, and intelligent individuals who want to be a part of our Allergy and Immunology program. The goal of our fellowship is to give physicians the optimal education and research experience that they need in order to provide exceptional allergy and immunology care in the future. We currently offer one to two competitive fellowship positions per year.
We are excited about our program and thank you for your interest,
