Applying for the Sleep Medicine Fellowship Program

This is an ACGME accredited multi-disciplinary fellowship providing training in all aspects of adult and pediatric sleep medicine. In addition to a broad clinical experience, both basic science and clinical research opportunities exist. The goal of the sleep fellowship program is to train and educate individuals in a comprehensive multidisciplinary program who will ultimately seek leadership and academic careers.

Sleep LabWe seek to attract and train fellows from diverse backgrounds (primary discipline, previous training institution, research experience, and personal attributes). Following completion of the program individuals will provide the highest level of clinical care and will be eligible for the conjoint Board of Sleep Medicine via the American Board of Medical Subspecialties.

Prospective fellows must meet all the requirements set by Graduate Medical Education at the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals, Inc. and the American Council on Graduate Medical Education.

Applications must be received to the ERAS® (Electronic Residency Application Service) associated with the National Residency Match Program before the application deadline. The prospective fellow candidate will be evaluated on leadership potential, letters of recommendation, curriculum vitae, English fluency, clinical and research experience, professional goals, and post fellowship plans.

Interviews are by invitation and securing a position in fellowship is done through the National Residency Match Program.

Eligible applicants include individuals who have completed training and are board-eligible or board-certified in Otolaryngology, Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Neurology, Pediatrics, Anesthesiology or Psychiatry. Upon completion of the fellowship individuals will be eligible for Board Certification in Sleep Medicine.
