At the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) Allergy and Immunology Fellowship program, we understand the importance of prioritizing wellness and wellbeing as you embark on your journey to become skilled and compassionate Allergists and Immunologists. We believe that your personal and professional growth can only thrive in an environment that supports your overall wellbeing. Therefore, we are committed to providing you with resources and fostering a culture of wellness throughout your fellowship experience. 

OHSU recognizes that the demands of medical training can be intense, and we are dedicated to creating an environment that promotes work-life balance and self-care. Here are some of the ways we prioritize wellness and support your overall wellbeing: 

  • Wellness Programs: OHSU offers a range of wellness programs designed to support your mental, emotional, and physical health. These programs may include mindfulness workshops, stress management sessions, yoga or fitness classes, and access to counseling services. We encourage you to take advantage of these resources to develop healthy habits and manage the demands of your training effectively. 

  • Supportive Community: As a fellow at OHSU, you will become part of a close-knit community that values collaboration, mutual support, and camaraderie. Our faculty, staff, and fellow fellows are committed to creating a positive and inclusive environment where you can feel supported and encouraged throughout your training. This community will serve as a source of guidance, friendship, and emotional support during both professional and personal challenges. 

  • Work-Life Integration: We recognize the importance of work-life integration and strive to provide you with the flexibility to balance your personal commitments and professional responsibilities. Our program leadership is committed to promoting reasonable work hours and time off to ensure you have the opportunity to recharge, pursue your hobbies, and spend quality time with loved ones. 

  • Mentorship and Guidance: As part of the fellowship program, you will have access to experienced faculty mentors who are dedicated to your professional growth and overall wellbeing. They will provide guidance, support, and advocacy, helping you navigate the challenges of training while encouraging a healthy and balanced approach to your career. 

  • Pacific Northwest Lifestyle: Living in the Pacific Northwest offers a unique opportunity to embrace an active and outdoorsy lifestyle. Portland, Oregon, known for its natural beauty, provides abundant opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and exploring stunning landscapes. Engaging in these activities can help you rejuvenate, stay active, and promote your overall wellbeing. 

We firmly believe that wellness and wellbeing are integral to your success as a fellow and future healthcare professional. By prioritizing self-care and creating a supportive environment, we aim to equip you with the tools and resources necessary to thrive both personally and professionally during your time with us. 

Join us at OHSU and embark on a fellowship experience that not only supports your academic and clinical growth but also nurtures your overall wellbeing. Together, we will ensure that your journey as an Allergy and Immunology fellow is marked by balance, resilience, and fulfillment. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the OHSU Allergy and Immunology Fellowship program, where your wellness and wellbeing are of utmost importance.
