Major Clinical and Investigative Interests

This multidisciplinary, ACGME-approved fellowship provides intensive training in diagnosis and management of patients with sleep disorders.  Primary faculty members have appointments in the departments of neurology and pediatrics, as well as the division of pulmonology, but there is access to an extended network of teaching faculty within the departments of otolaryngology, plastic surgery, psychiatry, and dentistry.

Fellow applicants with primary training in neurology, family medicine, internal medicine (with or without pulmonology/critical care training), otolaryngology, pediatrics, anesthesiology, and psychiatry are encouraged to apply.

This fellowship provides strong foundation in all aspects of adult and pediatric clinical sleep medicine.  There is a heavy emphasis on the interpretation of polysomnographic tests.  A research project is also expected of the fellow.  The fellowship meets eligibility requirements to sit for the sub-specialty board examination in sleep medicine.

The fellowship participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).  Interested candidates can apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  The application season begins in July.  We anticipate conducting interviews in the late summer/early fall.  The match is scheduled to occur in November.

Duration of fellowship: 1 year
Number of fellows per year: 1
