The Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology evaluates and treats both children and adults at our primary site, located in the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Clinics Building. As the allergy/clinical immunology service for the Medical College of Wisconsin, we service Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital, and the Zablocki VA Medical Center. We are a Jeffrey Modell Diagnostic Center of Excellence for Primary Immunodeficiency.
Fellows obtain expertise in diagnosing and treating the following conditions: asthma, rhinitis (allergic and non-allergic), recurrent infections, primary immunodeficiencies, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, urticaria, drug allergies, stinging insect reactions, occupational lung diseases including hypersensitivity pneumonitis, anaphylaxis, and latex allergy. There are comprehensive programs for asthma, eosinophilic esophagitis, and primary immunodeficiencies, which include multi-specialty care with rheumatology, hematology and oncology, gastroenterology, and infectious disease. Fellows see pediatric and adult patients in an integrated site, providing an enhanced educational experience, and strengthening the program. This allows the Fellow to develop well-rounded and excellent clinical training in allergic and immunologic diseases of children and adults. The clinical program is busy, enabling a very broad clinical experience in a supportive setting.
In addition, there is ample time for basic science or clinical research depending upon the expertise and wishes of the candidates. All Fellows learn to structure and evaluate studies, as well as critically evaluate data. Fellows develop skills in clinical and basic science research investigation, and present research at national and regional meetings, and in peer-reviewed publications. The Joint Fellowship Curriculum includes additional studies in this area.
