American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI)
The ACAAI is a professional medical organization of more than 6,000 allergists-immunologists and allied health professionals. Members live and practice throughout the United States and internationally. The College fosters a culture of collaboration and congeniality in which its members work together, and with others, toward the common goals of patient care, education, advocacy and research.
ACAAI allergists are board-certified physicians trained to diagnose allergies and asthma, administer immunotherapy, and provide patients with the best treatment outcomes.
So what does board-certified mean, exactly? A board-certified allergist is trained to find the source of your symptoms, treat it and help you feel healthy. After earning a medical degree, the doctor must complete a three-year residency-training program in either internal medicine or pediatrics. Then, an allergist completes two or three more years of study in the field of asthma, allergy and immunology.
The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology promotes excellence in the practice of the sub specialty of allergy and immunology.
