About Clinical Immunology Fellowship

The Department of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine offers a two-year fellowship program in clinical (medical laboratory) immunology accredited by the American College of Microbiology Committee on Postgraduate Educational Programs (CPEP). This fellowship covers the major areas of clinical and diagnostic immunology including laboratory administration, teaching, and research. Fellows rotate through clinical laboratories at ARUP Laboratories, the Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratory at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center, and the Public Health Laboratory at the Utah Department of Public Health (UDPH). The Clinical Facilities of the Laboratory of Immunology at ARUP Laboratories include Protein, Allergy, Autoimmune Disease Serology, Microbial Serology, Cellular and Innate, Flow Cytometry, and Hepatitis and Retrovirus Serology sections. Research facilities include the ARUP Institute for Clinical and Experimental Pathology and the University of Utah Laboratories of Drs. Marc R. Couturier, Julio Delgado, Nahla Heikal, Harry R. Hill, Attila Kumanovics, Patricia R. Slev, Anne E. Tebo, and Carl T. Wittwer.

Fellows completing the program are expected to take the certification examination in Medical Laboratory Immunology offered by the American Board of Medical Laboratory Immunology.


Prerequisite for admission includes a Ph.D. in immunology or related degree with at least two years of postdoctoral training in immunology or a medical degree (MD) or equivalent with residency in internal medicine, pediatrics or at least two years of research experience in immunology. Individuals with an M.D. or Ph.D. earned outside of the United States or Canada must have their original, official graduate transcripts (not photocopies) evaluated by an approved foreign educational evaluation agency prior to entering this training program.

J-1 Visa

The J-1 visa is the required visa for international trainees. This policy is governed by the University of Utah Office of Graduate Medical Education and applies to all Department of Pathology fellowships, regardless of program accreditation or associated degree type.
