Academic Level: Medical Fellow
Emory University School of Medicine offers a post-doctoral training program in sleep medicine. The Emory Sleep Medicine Fellowship program enrolls three fellows per year for a 12-month period.
The specific goals of the training program in sleep medicine are as follows:
- To develop excellence in the practice of sleep medicine. To teach the appropriate technical skills and ability to interpret polysomnography and other diagnostic tools used in sleep medicine.
- To teach basic administration and management of a sleep center.
- To encourage fellows to teach sleep medicine to each other, students, house staff, and attending staff.
- To interest fellows in basic and clinical research and allow them an opportunity to experience a research project first hand in hopes that this exposure will result in their continuing research in an academic setting. A meritorious project pursued to completion is expected by each fellow.
