MD 920: Advanced Neuro: Sleep Disorders

Students will spend 4 weeks learning about the principles and practice of sleep medicine. The majority of time will be spent in the multidisciplinary sleep clinics (neurology, pulmonary, pediatrics, dentistry). During clinic time, students will gain skills at performing a sleep history and physical exam and learn management options for common sleep disorders. Students will also get hands-on experience in the interpretation of in-laboratory sleep studies (diagnostic, CPAP titration, and multiple sleep latency tests), with a focus on identifying sleep stages and key pathological events (e.g., apneas, periodic limb movements).
