The Allergy Immunology (AI) Fellowship at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is a two-year program administered through The Ohio State University College of Medicine. The program is designed to be in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (ABAI) to ensure all individuals completing the two-year program will be eligible to sit for the board certified examination.
It is the goal of the fellowship to prepare physicians for a career in AI by providing extensive clinical training, research experience and teaching responsibilities.
