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.
The clinical fellowship is aimed at those doctors who wish to learn more about the diagnosis, treatment and management of a wide range of allergy conditions.
The fellowship will update you on the latest clinical practice and provide ‘hands on sessions’ in clinics and in our day case wards. There are further opportunities to see the ongoing work in our dedicated Clinical Trials Unit, where large, interventional studies are ongoing as well as in our laboratories.
As well as adult and paediatric allergy clinics, there are numerous opportunities to observe the work of other specialist departments such as the Dermatologists at the St John’s Institute of Dermatology, who work closely with our department.
There are also many unique joint clinics such as the joint Allergy/Gastroenterology clinics held with the Paediatric Gastroenterology team from Great Ormond Street Hospital as well as those with respiratory and ENT specialists. A key element of the fellowship is to consider how the knowledge and skills acquired on the fellowship can be applied back at work in your own setting.
A Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to visitors upon the end of their programme.
The clinical fellowship is delivered in the work place and participants will receive one to one supervision and direction while based in the clinic or day-case environment. A unique focus of this programme is the opportunity for participants to be totally integrated with the delivery of allergy services at the hospital.
Participants will also be included in the ongoing educational activities of the allergy department such as multidisciplinary team meetings and grand rounds as well as the programmes of the Allergy Academy.
The Allergy Academy hosts around 15 educational events each year ranging from intensive 3 day courses to study days with international key opinion leaders.
