The Accelerated Research Pathway (ARP) is one of the ABP’s nonstandard training pathways designed to provide flexibility in training to accommodate individual career goals, especially for residents who plan a career in academics. The pathway consists of two years of general pediatrics training with specific requirements in general pediatrics and four years of training in a pediatric subspecialty fellowship in a discipline in which the ABP requires Scholarly Activity. Access the requirements here.
Individuals interested in completing the ARP who wish to complete training in Allergy-Immunology may petition for approval to complete the requirements for the Accelerated Research Pathway in Allergy-Immunology. The program directors and candidate will be required to seek prospective approval by the ABP and the American Board of Allergy-Immunology (ABAI). A plan for the training must be submitted to both Boards by May of the R-1 year. The Boards will approve individuals and not training programs. The pathway consists of two years of general pediatrics training with specific requirements in general pediatrics and four years of training in allergy-immunology.
