Immunology Dual Certification Program

We offer a rigorous three-year program that incorporates rheumatology and allergy/immunology fellowship training to highly qualified candidates. This dual-certification pathway confers eligibility for fellowship graduates to become certified in Adult Rheumatology through the American Board of Internal Medicine and Allergy/Immunology through the American Board of Allergy/Immunology. 

The division has three faculty members with training in both subspecialties, two of whom are graduates of the fellowship programs at the University of Iowa. The dual-certification pathway enables graduates to specialize in the growing number of conditions that overlap these two fields. 

Applicants for this three-year program should first review all information for both fellowships on our website, then submit the ERAS application to our rheumatology fellowship training program, indicating interest in the dual-certification pathway in the personal statement. Applicants selected for interview will meet with faculty members and fellow physicians from both the rheumatology and allergy/immunology sections of the Division of Immunology.
