The Conjoint UW A&I Fellowship Training Program Committee (William R. Henderson, MD, Chair) formulate training policies, reviews applicants for the training program, and evaluates the progress of the A&I fellows in achieving the 50/25/25% curriculum requirements for direct patient care, research and scholarly activities, and other educational objectives, described in the Program Requirements for Residency Education in Allergy and Immunology.

The Conjoint UW A&I Fellowship Advisory Committee (Mary V.
