National Jewish Health - Education


National Jewish Health - an affiliate of the University of Colorado School of Medicine (CU SOM) Department of Pediatrics - offers a variety of pediatric educational programs for medical students, residents, and fellows. 

Case-by-case teaching is conducted in inpatient clinics, with four different assignments:

  • Pediatric Day Program and Medical Officer of the Day at National Jewish
  • Pediatric Clinics at Children’s Hospital Colorado and Denver Health
  • Adult Allergy Consult Service at the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH)

Teaching also takes place in our outpatient clinics at National Jewish, Children's Colorado, and UCH:

  • Outpatient Pediatric Allergy and Immunology Clinics
  • Adult Allergy Continuity Clinics and Consult Service
  • Immunodeficiency Clinic, Dermatology/Atopic Dermatitis, Rheumatology, and ENT Clinics

We also use formal teaching conferences.

An elective in pediatric allergy and immunology is available for fourth-year medical students who have successfully completed a pediatric clerkship.

Training for pediatric residents in allergy, immunology and rheumatology takes place in a single, integrated academic program at National Jewish Health, the University of Colorado Hospital, the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, and Children's Hospital Colorado.

National Jewish Health and the CU SOM Department of Pediatrics offer an ACGME-certified, two-year Fellowship in Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, which sponsors two to three fellows each year.
