TARC welcomes Dr. Iglesia and Dr. Patel to its Allergy/Immunology Fellowship program. Fellows follow a “Core” 2-year (Clinical + Research) program. For some participants there is an optional 3rd year of advanced training in research. All fellows learn the clinical aspects of Allergy and Immunology while working side-by-side with faculty in a traditional ‘attending clinic.’ In addition, they learn to provide longitudinal care in their own “continuity clinic.” Learn more about our new fellows and our program…
