Allergy and Immunology Fellowship

Program Goal

The goal of the Clinical Immunology Fellowship Program at the University of Tennessee is to give pediatricians and internists a well-rounded educational experience allowing them to be competitive in pursuing a career in allergy and clinical immunology. This program offers supervised in-depth training in clinical allergy, asthma, and immunologic diseases so that the trainee can provide high quality care to children and adults with these disorders. Structured clinical and basic research projects under the direct supervision by faculty members during the fellowship will allow the trainee to develop skills important in seeking an academic position. Our research interests include immunologic mechanisms of allergy, asthma, gene therapy and autoimmunity and the role of the T cell receptor.

Why Memphis?

riverboat on the Mississippi RiverMemphis is a city like no other. Nestled on the banks of the Mississippi River, Memphis is where starving actor Danny Thomas built a children’s hospital (St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has helped increase the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%); Fred Smith started a small delivery service (FedEx now generates $60 billion dollars a year); the King of Rock ‘n Roll chose to live (Elvis’ Graceland sees 600,000+ visitors each year); and where you’ll find USA Today’s most iconic street (Beale Street has attracted fans from all over the world since the 1860s).

More city points of pride:

Memphis has been the inspiration for over 1,000 songs. We’re pretty proud of our town and think once you experience Memphis, you will be, too.
