Allergy Academy – Clinical Fellowships in Allergy

The UK has the highest prevalence of allergic disease in the world. The Allergy Department at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, situated in the centre of London, is one of the largest provider of specialist allergy care for adults and children in Europe.

As well as having a reputation for clinical excellence, the allergy department also runs an internationally renowned programme of clinical and laboratory research. Our large faculty of adult and paediatric allergists have a long tradition of active involvement in post graduate allergology education for doctors from around the world, using the most innovative teaching methods.

The Clinical Fellowship programme offers an unrivalled opportunity to benefit from world class clinical research and educational opportunities to enable you to develop your allergology practice in the heart of one of the world’s greatest cities.

Who should attend?

 

This programme is intended primarily for non U.K. doctors, with an interest in allergy. This includes Allergologists, Paediatricians, Pulmonologists, ENT surgeons, Dermatologists, Gastroenterologists or General Practitioners. Delegates are expected to have worked in a hospital setting.

Duration

We are able to offer clinical fellowships for overseas doctors for 3, 6 or 12 months. Shorter or longer attachments are available if required. As we have a number of visiting doctors at any one time, it is important that we have a clear understanding of exactly which areas of allergy you are most interested in.

These include:

Clinical Allergology (Adult)
Clinical Allergology (Paediatric)
Clinical Research
Laboratory Research

Clinical fellowships are tailored to your specific requirements and if you have a specific interest in a particular area e.g. food allergy, drug allergy, allergen immunotherapy then simply let us know.

The clinical fellowships are run by the Department of Allergy. Allergy Services are divided into the Paediatric Allergy service at St Thomas’ Hospital and Adult Allergy service at Guy’s Hospital. The Academic Department of Allergy is fully integrated into the clinical service and is part of King’s College London. Clinical Leads for Allergy are Professor Gideon Lack and Dr Adam Fox.
