Sleep Fellowship Program

Eligibility and Selection

Goals:
The goal of the UW Sleep Medicine Fellowship program is to provide outstanding multidisciplinary clinical training in the context of a one-year fellowship to candidates with high academic potential.  The long term goal is to train individuals who contribute significantly to the advancement of sleep medicine as a specialty through research, teaching, or clinical practice.

Eligibility:
Candidates must be able to complete residency training and be eligible for board certification in at least one of the specialties that are permitted to enter ACGME accredited programs (internal medicine, neurology, pediatrics, otolaryngology, psychiatry, family practice or anesthesiology) in sleep medicine prior to the start date of the sleep fellowship (typically July 1).

Selection Criteria:
An ideal candidate would be one who possesses outstanding personal characteristics, and evidence of excellence in clinical, academic and research arenas. Evaluation of candidates will be on the basis of personal, clinical, research and academic qualities assessed through application materials and personal interview. Special attention is paid to evidence of high academic potential as reflected in quality of prior training programs, evaluations of performance during prior training, formal didactic training in research or teaching, and academic productivity as reflected in publications.

Selection Process:
Applicants must submit the required application materials via ERAS in order to be considered for an interview. We recommend submitting materials in July.

Applications are reviewed by the Fellowship Selection Committee in order to determine which candidates will be offered the opportunity to interview.

After interviews are completed, the Fellowship Selection Committee will determine the rank order list to submit to NRMP.
