The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine offers a Sleep Medicine Fellowship Program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The current program has evolved from clinical and research training programs in sleep medicine, which have trained numerous post-doctoral fellows in the past 30 years. The fellowship combines interdisciplinary clinical and research training activities, which are interwoven over a two-year period (one year clinical, one year research). The clinical training experience interweaves a series of longitudinal outpatient clinics with sleep specialty clinics that are incorporated into specific rotations. The program consists of four distinct areas of training:
- Sleep disorders clinics
- Sleep laboratories
- Conferences (core curricular lectures, weekly case conference, monthly journal club, research conference and dedicated, supervised polysomnography review sessions)
- Mentored research
The Sleep Medicine Fellowship Program provides a broad range of clinical and research training opportunities in sleep medicine and fosters the development of an academic career. In each area, fellows are encouraged to play an active role in evaluating and managing cases with faculty, staff and other fellows. Each fellow also is expected to pursue a research project with a faculty mentor throughout the program.
Eligible fellowship candidates will have completed a residency program in psychiatry, neurology or otolaryngology/head and neck surgery, or a fellowship in adult or pediatric pulmonary medicine.
