In brief: Little to big

I am a rheuamtolgoist, but trained in a program called clinical immunology and rheumatology.
The allergists where in the program. Otherwise, in many places the rheumatology section is distinct, and there will be allergy and immunology programs. There are appreciable overlaps between what either speciality does.
