Experienced faculty, diverse training sites and comprehensive
rotations ensure that your UB fellowship will thoroughly prepare
you for a future in sleep medicine.
Our fellowship fulfills all requirements of the Accreditation
Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). After
satisfactorily completing our one-year program, you will be board
eligible in sleep medicine.
During your training you will work with faculty
members who are dedicated to developing your expertise in this
challenging and stimulating field. Our low
fellow-to-faculty ratio creates a nurturing, gratifying
Our rotations provide broader patient
care experience and technical training than you’d
encounter in many fellowships. Training in our system of affiliated
sites, you’ll work in several community-based
centers and a specialty facility for veterans. Combined, our
sites enhance your skills in diagnosing and managing an array of
common and uncommon sleep conditions. You’ll learn about
conducting sleep studies and care for patients with circadian
rhythm disorders as well as sleep apnea and parasomnia patients,
I am confident our pediatric
rotation will expand your knowledge about sleep disorders
occurring in adolescents and children while our other subspecialty
rotations provide you with valuable interdisciplinary
exposure and help you achieve a solid understanding of other
fields involved in sleep medicine.
Our program gives you the opportunity to engage in optional
research; our faculty
publish in leading academic journals and will support your research
ambitions. An accomplished faculty mentor will guide you as you
embark on the process of writing an abstract, delivering
presentations and preparing for publication.
Sleep medicine is a quickly evolving specialty; few institutions
have a long history of involvement in the field. UB, however, has a
notable history of sleep medicine training. Prior to being granted
an ACGME-accredited fellowship in 2006, the university enacted a
program approved by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine in 2001.
We are eager to pass along our wealth of experience to you.
We welcome high-caliber
fellows from a variety
of backgrounds, including pulmonary medicine, neurology,
clinical neurophysiology, psychiatry, internal medicine, family
medicine and pediatrics. Our fellows' diverse
backgrounds help them expand their perspectives and learn more from
