Program Curriculum   How to Apply   Program Faculty

Fellows benefit from being exposed to a wide spectrum and large number of patients. Our Medical and Sleep Centers serve the entire Toledo area as well as Northwest Ohio. This provides an exceptional environment for learning across multiple age groups, ethnic populations and a wide breadth of disease states. 

Our fellows have the opportunity to see complicated and unusual cases of sleep pathology on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Our Program is intended to expand a trainee’s basic knowledge of sleep neurobiology, note the growth and development of pediatric sleep, the effects of aging on neurological disorders, brain trauma, endocrinology and cardiopulmonary effects. Training is geared to provide the technical expertise needed to establish and maintain a sleep laboratory, read and interpret polysomnograms, and assist in the refinement of clinical skills in sleep medicine. The trainee will participate in an interdisciplinary care of patients of all ages. This incorporates aspects of psychiatry, neurology, internal medicine, epidemiology, otolaryngology, pediatrics and basic science. Each fellow will be involved in a research project at the cutting edge of sleep medicine.

Upon completion of our program, fellows will be prepared to successfully complete the Sleep Medicine Board Certification Exam, given certification and be able to open their own sleep medicine practice.

What is Sleep Medicine?

From the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) website:Sleep medicine is a medical subspecialty devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of sleep disorders. Sleep disorders are widespread and can have significant consequences for affected individuals. Left untreated, sleep disorders increase the risk of chronic medical problems such as obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, depression and stroke. Sleep medicine is an exciting and challenging integrative field covering much of the human body including the pulmonary, endocrine, respiratory, muscular and nervous systems.”
