Allergy/immunology subspecialty programs will change their recruitment cycle from second to third year (from PGY-2 to PGY-3) starting with ERAS 2013 (Electronic Residency Application Service).
The residents will now apply to A/I fellowships in their third year, not their second. It gives both pediatric and internal medicine residents a little extra time to get experience and do research during their 2nd year.
Attention Fellowship Applicants: Many allergy/immunology subspecialty programs will not participate in ERAS 2012; please contact programs to confirm their participation status before applying.
ERAS for Fellowship Applicants (scroll to the bottom of the page for the A/I announcement).
