Sleep Medicine Fellowship

The Sleep Medicine Fellowship is an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited program involving faculty from many specialties, including pulmonary/critical care medicine, neurology, otorhinolaryngology, psychiatry and psychology.

In our program, you’ll build a strong foundation in all areas of sleep medicine, taking an active role in patient care, laboratory studies, research, teaching and practice examinations. Faculty will provide reading material with supplemental reading recommendations.

You’ll understand and be able to characterize sleep-related breathing disorders, parasomnias, insomnias, dyssomnias, and medical/psychiatric sleep disorders and will build competency in the technical aspects of sleep disorder diagnosis.

How to apply

The Sleep Medicine Fellowship participates fully in the Electronic Residency Application Service match system through the National Resident Matching Program. Please submit applications to ERAS as it becomes available in July.
