An immunologist is a medical specialist who works with the Immune system. The system in the body responsible for protecting it from infection and disease. When someone talks about an immunologist, he is usually thinking of the specialist who works in hospitals and medical offices, treating patients. This type of doctor holds a medical degree as either a general practice physician or pediatrician, but has specialized training in immunology. This medical professional will typically treat patients with autoimmune disorders or complicated allergies. Allergic reactions of all types fall under this specialty.
Patients may experience respiratory symptoms, gastrointestinal discomfort, or skin rashes. There are allergies for everything from drugs and food to environmental factors, such as pollen or even the sun. Not all immunologists treat patients directly, and some focus on scientific research. These professionals direct their attention toward finding new treatments for various disorders of the immune system. They also perform continuing research to better understand this part of the body. A scientific researcher will work primarily within a laboratory setting. Some immunology professionals may also choose to split their work between hands-on practice and research. They might spend part of their time in a laboratory performing research and put that research into practice by treating patients. Such individuals would likely specialize in a very specific area rather than working with all types of immunological disorders.
Scientific researchers must have an in-depth understanding of their area of study. A medical degree is not required for
