Why would you want to be an Allergist?

Canada is in the midst of the “Allergy Epidemic”. Up to 40% of the Canadian population will be affected by at least one allergic condition in some point of their lives, and the prevalence of certain atopic conditions, such as food allergy, continue to be on the rise. Some of the allergic conditions faced by our patients are potentially life-threatening (e.g. food allergy is associated with a real risk of anaphylaxis; asthma exacerbation are potentially fatal as well), while other conditions we treat carry huge quality of life burden for sufferers (e.g. Allergic Rhinitis, Chronic Urticaria). The potential to help a large proportion of the Canadian population exists, and a lot of our treatments actually work, which leads to tremendous job satisfaction. In fact, Immunology leads the list of specialties for work/life balance as seen in the results of the Canadian Medical Association study.
