Major goals of training

UMMC’s mission of patient care, education and research is observed closely in Allergy/Immunology. Mississippi is a fertile ground for allergic diseases, as Jackson is traditionally in the top 5 list of “most allergic cities.”

This is a fully integrated medicine-pediatrics program that permits entry of residents trained in internal medicine, pediatrics, or both. Trainees receive in-depth experience in the diagnosis and management of the full spectrum of allergic and immunologic diseases in both children and adults. Subspecialty residents are involved in outpatient and consultative care at the University of Mississippi Medical Center Hospitals and Clinics and the G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Great emphasis is given to education during the training. The board pass rate in A/I is 100%. Didactic lessons are provided to A/I fellows regularly, including weekly lectures from faculty, bi-monthly journal club with private practice allergists, and multidisciplinary conferences. Our fellows are expected to conduct clinical and translational/basic research, which results in presentations at regional and national meetings and in publications in select peer-reviewed journals.  The fellows also play an active role in teaching rotating residents.

Our faculty has varied areas of academic expertise and research focus that collectively allow us to provide care for unusual diseases and complicated cases as only an academic medical center can, while at the same time, educating our learners.
