A Message From Our Chief

The Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology provides comprehensive evaluation, treatment, and education for patients with allergic and immunologic disorders. Our division has 16 faculty members who provide inpatient and outpatient care for patients at the University of Michigan hospital and four clinics located in Ann Arbor and Northville. We just opened the doors to our new clinic at West Ann Arbor Health Center - Parkland Plaza, Michigan Medicine's newest location, that will have a lab, radiology, pharmacy, primary care, and multiple specialties all under one roof. Our clinical activity will continue to expand with the upcoming addition of a second new clinic in Brighton, with a tentative opening date in fall 2018.

The majority of our faculty members are involved in research activities, all with the goal of improving diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of allergic and immunologic conditions. In addition to research within the division, many of our faculty also conduct research at the U-M Mary H. Weiser Food Allergy Center which was established to investigate novel areas of research to better understand the causes and to help develop new therapies for food allergies.

Our Allergy and Clinical Immunology Fellowship Training Program is one of the premier programs in the country. Fellows are immersed in a concentrated two-year inpatient and outpatient experience with cross training in Adult and Pediatric Allergy, along with structured research training. Weekly divisional and departmental seminars, rounds and conferences, provide learning and teaching opportunities for both our faculty and fellows. Our division considers teaching within the University of Michigan and within the community, and training our fellows, among our most important jobs. 

I want to thank you for your interest in the Allergy and Clinical Immunology Division. Please let us know if we can answer any questions.
