Goals include: (1) the extension of history-taking skills to include environmental exposures, (2) the recognition of physical findings suggestive of allergic disease, (3) understanding the indications and interpretation of diagnostic testing including skin testing and assessment of pulmonary function, and (4) application of appropriate therapeutic strategies to these disorders. Weekly didactic conferences and inpatient consultations provide additional educational opportunities. Valid start weeks for 4-week blocks are: Weeks, 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, 21, 25, 29, 33, 37 and 41.
