Sleep Medicine

A spector

The Duke University Sleep Medicine Fellowship is a one-year, ACGME-accredited program that emphasizes advanced training in the interpretation of sleep testing and the diagnosis and management of sleep disorders. Our two trainees will gain extensive experience interpreting in-lab polysomnograms, home sleep tests, and multiple sleep latency tests. They will see patients in academic and community settings, providing broad exposure to all of sleep medicine as it is practiced in various settings. Training in both adult and pediatric sleep medicine is provided.

The Duke Neurology Department recognizes that diversity is a necessary component of its mission of world-class patient care, education, and research. Our program is committed to building and maintaining a diverse and inclusive community where all members thrive in a welcoming and engaging environment. Read more about our diversity and inclusion efforts across the Department here.

The fellowship is based at Duke University Medical Center (6 months) and the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center (6 months) with clinical experiences in several local sleep clinics. The Duke Sleep Disorders Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and is located in the Millennium Hotel, nearby Duke's campus in Durham. The Durham VAMC has its own sleep lab. Both labs perform studies seven nights per week. A separate pediatric sleep lab provides fellows the opportunity to interpret pediatric sleep studies.

 
Prerequisite: Completion of an ACGME, CFPC, or RCPSC accredited residency in Neurology, Child Neurology, Psychiatry, Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Otolaryngology, or Anesthesiology.
 
Salary Level: PGY-5 or commensurate with experience (i.e. graduates of 3-year residencies will be paid at the PGY-4 level).
