Sleep Medicine Fellowship
The primary goal of the Sleep Medicine Fellowship training program at the McGovern Medical School, is to prepare trainees so that they graduate as knowledgeable sleep sub-specialists, capable of taking care of all age groups. Not only the “bread and butter” diagnoses, but also the most challenging of cases and patients. We provide a comprehensive one-year clinical track with 2 fellowship positions offered per year. The program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and meets the requirements for certification in Sleep Medicine by all the subspecialty boards that offer the examination. You will be provided with opportunities to evaluate and manage a broad variety of sleep disorders with an abundance of both adult and pediatric patients. You will also develop advanced skills for using all the diagnostic tools and treatment modalities in the field. Training is centered at the Sleep Disorders Center at Memorial Hermann Hospital – Texas Medical Center where both adult and pediatric patients are evaluated. Instruction in sleep medicine also includes rotations at the world renowned (and U.S. News & World Report ranked) TIRR Rehabilitation and MD Anderson Cancer Hospitals. As part of the training, we have a robust lecture series with a built-in board preparation and review. You will also have the opportunity to participate in a research project and will be provided with a generous stipend for books and for national conference attendance.
