Mission Statement

Our mission is to serve patients through our clinical endeavors while training the most excellent Allergists and Immunologists who will practice our specialty, conduct research, and themselves go on to teach subsequent generations of outstanding physicians in the field. We strive to:

  • Provide excellent care for patients in our Allergy/Immunology and Rheumatology clinics.
  • Educate and train outstanding physicians in Allergy/Immunology to evaluate, diagnose, and manage patients with the highest degree of scientific and clinical excellence.
  • Provide histocompatibility testing support for the Tulane Multi-Organ Transplant Programs, including kidney, liver, heart, and pancreas, as well as allogeneic and autologous bone marrow transplantation, through our Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratory. Read More

Our fellows will benefit from learning about the many facets of the practice of medicine, including sensitivity and compassion for the human beings they see in their practice, awareness of cultural differences, and the ethical practice of medicine. They will be exposed to many related topics, basic science and clinical, through our various seminars and conferences. Our fellows participate in ongoing research and must choose a research project to complete and present for completion of their training. Our fellows, through their training, develop a lifelong interest and desire to continue learning and to share their knowledge.

Best Doctors!

Congratulations to Dr. Laurianne Wild and Dr. Jane El-Dahr, both of who were chosen as among the best Allergy and Immunology physicians in the state of Louisiana by Best Doctors, Inc., a company that has built a database of professionals that are highly regarded by their peers.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Statement 

Our Allergy and Immunology fellowship program is committed to equity as the driver of diversity and inclusion (EDI). Tulane defines diversity broadly to include persons of color, members of the LGBTQIA community, members of diverse ethnic groups including those typically underrepresented in medicine, members of economically disadvantaged groups, and any others who bring a different perspective to the learning environment. We, in Allergy and Immunology, are committed to providing excellent, patient-centered care to our diverse patient population. We provide care at several locations that include underrepresented minorities and other economically disadvantaged groups.  We also take pride in having a group of providers and trainees that are made up of persons from ethnically diverse backgrounds, including members of color and members from the LGBTQIA community.  Having individual providers and learners from these diverse groups helps us provide better care to our diverse patient population and better education through connection, understanding and appreciation of our unique differences. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion = Excellence in patient care and learning!
