About the Program

The goal of this fellowship is to train physicians who have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in Neurology, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Otolaryngology, Anesthesiology, or Family Medicine to become competent in the subspecialty of Sleep Medicine. Our fellows are expected to become proficient in the diagnosis and management of both adult and pediatric sleep disorders.

During the one-year fellowship, our fellows will acquire:

  • Skills in interviewing and examining patients with sleep disorders
  • Ability to formulate a focused differential diagnosis based on clinical presentation
  • Understanding of the appropriate utilization of procedures related to sleep assessment, including adult and pediatric polysomnogram, home sleep apnea testing, positive airway pressure titration, and multiple sleep latency testing
  • Ability to independently interpret sleep studies, including studies of medically complex patients
  • Exposure to a wide range of treatment options, including hypoglossal nerve stimulation, mandibular advancement devices, and formal cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-i)
  • Opportunities in sleep-related research and quality improvement measures

Accreditation: After completing fellowship, fellows qualify to apply for certification through the American Board of Sleep Medicine Sleep Medicine Certification Program. This program is jointly developed by the ABIM, ABFM, ABP, ABPN, ABOto, and ABA (ABIM is responsible for administering the examination).
