Our curriculum starts with an interactive bootcamp, which is a mix of lectures and hands-on learning to prepare you for your clinical and research work during fellowship.
We also offer a unique anaphylaxis shock simulation. This takes place once at the UW Health Clinical Simulation Program, and again in the clinic, where food challenges that may bring on anaphylaxis shock are encountered.
Here are examples of our didactic experiences:
- Weekly conferences on such topics as food allergy, asthma, skin testing, IT prescriptions and drug allergies
- Hands-on sessions with a clinic nurse on how to use asthma inhalers, sinus rinses and nasal sprays
- Meetings with faculty to learn about active research and clinical trials, in preparation for research participation
Fellows attend and present at these didactic conferences throughout the year.
Our research curriculum includes monthly mentor meetings and quarterly research committee meetings.
Our integrated adult and pediatric clinics prepare you to care for patients for all ages. You'll see patients in your own continuity clinic and in our clinical research evaluation clinic. We also offer elective rotations in the ENT and dermatology clinics.
Fellows identify a research mentor during their first few weeks of the fellowship. This mentor works closely with you throughout training to assist with your local and national presentations. Many fellows also author at least one publication with the assistance of their mentor.
See our fellowship research page for more details.
The Department of Medicine's Fellow Medical Education (FAME) Training Track trains fellows to become effective clinician-teachers and scholars.
Our department also offers several educator resources designed to address the issues and questions that educators confront regularly.
Additional Opportunities in the Department
- QI Curriculum for Fellowship. Teaches fellows how to apply quality improvement knowledge and skills directly to clinical practice.
- Women in Leadership and Development (WILD). Trainee-led program that provides women fellows with a toolkit for career advancement and skills to negate systemic gender bias and inequities in academic medicine.
