Clinical Immunology


The Department of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine offers training clinical (medical laboratory) immunology accredited by the American Society of Microbiology Committee on Postgraduate Educational Programs (CPEP).

Fellows in the program rotate through ARUP laboratories, the Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratory at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center, and the Public Health Laboratory at the Utah Department of Public Health (UDPH). The rotations in ARUP Laboratories covers training in all areas of clinical diagnostic immunology as outlined in the CPEP essentials for immunology training. Fellows also participate in research activities with the faculty and staff in the Department of Pathology and the ARUP institute for Clinical and Experimental Pathology.

Faculty members include: Julio Delgado, MD/MS., D(ABHI), Harry R. Hill, MD., Eszter Lazar-Molnar, PhD., D(ABMLI) and D(ABHI), Lisa K. Peterson, PhD., D(ABMLI), Jennifer Rychert, PhD., D(ABMM), Patricia Slev, PhD., D(ABCC), Anne E. Tebo, PhD., D(ABMLI), Carl T. Wittwer, MD., Karl Voelkerding, MD.

The program is not currently accepting applications.  Our program’s positions include a two-year fellowship in clinical immunology training, and a three-year fellowship in clinical immunology with an emphasis on histocompatibility and immunogenetics testing in the last two years of training.

Note: CPEP accreditation is limited to the two years of immunology training. The training program covers the major areas of clinical and diagnostic immunology, including laboratory administration, teaching and research.


University of Utah Health, ARUP Laboratories, and Primary Children’s Hospital, are all within walking distance of one another, creating a varied and exciting campus. Because of ARUP’s dual role as primary laboratory for University of Utah Health, and as a national reference laboratory serving major community and academic universities, our mission statement focusing on service, teaching, and research guides all training efforts. For service, we provide quality diagnostic laboratory support, testing, and consultation in a cost-effective and timely manner for patient care purposes. Through local and national consultations and conferences, we strive to teach physicians, technologists, and clients the appropriate use of diagnostic laboratory tests and resource utilization in the care of patients. For research, we develop and improve testing methods for the accurate diagnosis of disease.
