Dr. John Leung is invested in training the next generation of dietitians, medical students, residents and fellows of various specialties and educational backgrounds. While a significant part of his teaching and lectures happen at Tufts Medical Center, he offers short internships/ outpatient rotations at Boston Food Allergy Center. Our educational partners include Tufts Medical Center Gastroenterology fellowship, Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition, St. Elizabeth Medical Center internal medicine residency program and Tufts High School Students Program.
In addition, BFAC also takes 1-2 international scholars with MD degree who want to advance their clinical and research training in food allergy and intolerances. Only applicants who are fluent in written and spoken English, and with Step 1 score higher than 250, are encouraged to apply. These training programs are unpaid, and a minimum of three months commitment is required. Training is tailored to the mentees’ career goal, educational background and level of training. Individualized reading materials, educational objectives and mini-research projects will be assigned and provided at the beginning of the rotations. Typical rotation for students and medical residents is 2-3 weeks long, 5.5 days a week. To apply for electives, please submit a cover letter with your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
