Sleep Medicine Fellowship

The Sleep Medicine Fellowship program is based in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine in the Department of Medicine at North Shore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center. It is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education. The combined resources of these tertiary care medical centers provide sleep medicine fellows with a broad multidisciplinary clinical and research experience in sleep medicine. 

The program is one year in length and is based at the North Shore Long Island Jewish Sleep Disorders Center, which is one of the largest sleep medicine centers in the region and fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.  Fellows are taught by a multidisciplinary sleep medicine faculty with backgrounds in pulmonary medicine, otolaryngology, dental sleep medicine, psychiatry and behavioral sleep medicine. Trainees benefit from a comprehensive experience in the diagnosis and management of adult and pediatric patients with a broad range of sleep disorders, in both inpatient and outpatient settings.  Fellows are encouraged to participate in scholarly activities that involve teaching, basic and clinical research in sleep medicine. They also benefit from the resources of the Center for Heart and Lung Research of the North Shore-LIJ Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.  A weekly sleep medicine conference includes clinical, core and multidisciplinary topics.  The program is available to board-eligible internists and pulmonary/critical care medicine fellowship graduates, neurologists and psychiatrists.
