Sleep Medicine Fellowship Curriculum

The Sleep Medicine Fellowship program provides fellows with ample experience in an ambulatory setting with neurology, pulmonary and pediatric pulmonary attendings on a regular basis. Fellows also have their own continuity sleep clinics.

Fellows are required to gain experience in the scoring and interpretation of sleep studies and to prove their proficiency. They can also work with otolaryngologists (both adult and pediatric), neuropsychologists and orthodontists in the management of sleep disorders. 

The program also offers intensive laboratory exposure, and fellows can interpret about 2,000 studies

Clinical Rotations

Fellows will follow the board requirements for sleep programs which includes:

Eleven months of experience in sleep medicine which includes sleep clinic and sleep studies reading experience with adult neurology and pulmonary sleep physicians as well as with a pediatric psychiatric sleep physician.  One month elective which can include EEG, Pulmonary, or Research.

In addition, our sleep fellows have the opportunity to work with pediatric pulmonary otolaryngology, dentistry and neuropsychology providers to gain experience in the overall management of sleep disorders in both adult and pediatric patients.
