Welcome to A/I! You will be working in the Comer clinics getting exposure to common pediatric allergy/immunology diseases.


Before Your Rotation


  • Two- or four-week rotation open to all residents
  • Includes clinics at Comer and South Loop as well as inpatient consults
  • There are no call or weekend responsibilities on this elective

Roles and Responsibilities

  • All absences between Monday 8 AM and Friday 5 PM for the entire rotation (except for didactics and continuity clinic) must be approved by Dr. Ciaccio and Singla in advance of the rotation. Vacation days, conferences, etc, without significant justification will not be approved. If it appears that a resident is unable to spend significant time with us (e.g. only 5 half day clinics over two weeks), they will not be allowed to start the rotation. If they do not communicate absences with us, they will receive a failing review from our team.
  • If a resident is sick, this must be communicated by email to the attending physician for the day, Dr. Ciaccio, Ms. Collins, and the chief residents. As we care for complex immunodeficiency patients, we will reserve the right to request a doctor’s note to return to the service.
  • The resident will receive direct supervision by an Attending Physician
  • Residents are expected to attend morning report and noon conference
  • Residents on sick or jeopardy call must carry their pagers at all times or appropriately forward this to an appropriate phone number where they can be reached. If activated for sick or jeopardy call, they must contact the director of the rotation to alert them of their absence
