Allergy & Immunology

Fellowship Program

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Training Program at The University of Texas Medical Branch!

The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) at Galveston offers a training program in Allergy and Clinical Immunology, which is fully accredited by the American Medical Association Liaison Committee on Graduate Medical Education. This is a conjoint program offered by the Allergy & Immunology Division of the Department of Internal Medicine and the Division of Infectious Diseases and Immunology of the Department of Pediatrics.

UTMB is the oldest medical school in Texas, established in 1891, and the second oldest in the western states. Our university includes integrated schools of medicine, graduate biomedical sciences, allied health sciences, and nursing. Started in 1970, UTMB is one of the oldest programs in Allergy and Immunology in the country. The mission of the training program is to provide advanced education in basic immunology, comprehensive training in allergy and clinical immunology, and research and scholarly activity opportunities in basic, clinical, and quality improvement research. Our fellows are exposed to the large spectrum of allergic and immunologic conditions including hypersensitivity diseases, severe asthma, atopic dermatitis, and immunodeficiencies. The core faculty for this program within the Departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics includes six full-time physicians board-certified in Allergy and Immunology that are very dedicated to fellow education and patient care.

Our clinics are located both in Galveston and off the island in nearby League City. Our fellows are also provided the opportunity to care for patient at the Texas Department of Corrections Hospital located on the UTMB campus. These different practice settings provide our fellows with diverse clinical experiences and exposure to a diverse patient population.

Our graduated fellows have successfully pursued careers in both private practice and academic medicine. They have gone on to become leaders in our field and expert clinicians.
I invite you to visit the rest of our website and submit an ERAS application to our program. Thank you for your interest and consideration.
