It is well known that Columbus Ohio Allergy physicians require extensive training to become board certified.  Allergy and asthma specialists require an undergraduate degree, four years of medical school, three years of residency training in either pediatrics or internal medicine, and two to three years of allergy and immunology fellowship training.

After completing all the required clinical and research requirements, Columbus Ohio Allergy candidates can apply for and take an exam administered by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (ABAI).  When the exam is passed, a physician is then “certified” as an allergy and immunology specialist by the ABAI.

The recertification process begins immediately after initial certification and includes self-assessments, peer reviews, and numerous hours of continuing medical education (CME).  Many requirements can be satisfied through on-line education and by attending medical conferences.

Every year, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology and the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology stage separate conferences where the latest research in our field are presented and discussed.  Regional and local allergy societies hold smaller meetings as well (including the Ohio Society of Allergy and Immunology and the Columbus Allergy Society).

After 10 years, the re-certification process culminates in taking another ABAI exam.  If passed, the 10-year cycle begins again for Columbus Ohio Allergy doctors.

The physicians at Midwest Allergy have undergone extensive training and place great importance on continuing education.  We believe this arduous process enables us to provide specialized, high quality and cost-effective care to our patients.
