PREREQUISITE: Requires completion of medicine and pediatric clerkships AND a car for traveling to NJ office.

Kristine Krol, M.D., is Director of Allergy & Immunology.

The Allergy and Immunology Division emphasizes outpatient diagnosis and the treatment of immunologic and allergic disorders. The Division conducts weekly sessions at faculty practice locations.

Medical residents and assigned students have the opportunity to evaluate patients in the faculty office setting as well as the more traditional clinic.

Residents become experienced in the recognition and management of common allergic disorders encountered in the practice of primary care general internal medicine. Assigned medical residents and students can also expect to learn the indications and techniques for performing skin testing.

All inpatient consultations are initially evaluated by the resident and then reviewed with the division's teaching staff.

The Allergy and Immunology Division conducts both formal and informal lectures, including Grand Rounds, on state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of allergies, asthma, and other immunologic disorders.
