Welcome and thank you for your interest in the University of Wisconsin Sleep Medicine Fellowship!

We offer a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship program, with options for additional years of research for interested candidates. Our program features extensive clinical experiences with seamless integration between adult and pediatric sleep medicine. We consider fellowship applicants from all eligible subspecialties, and tailor training to meet each learner’s educational needs.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has an international reputation for excellence in sleep research and education that extends over three decades. This program has included past and present leaders within the field of sleep medicine and research. In partnership with the Wisconsin Institute for Sleep and Consciousness, we integrate our patient-centered clinical program with basic science and translational research.

Our faculty members include sleep specialists representing Psychiatry, Neurology, Pulmonary Medicine, Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, and Psychology. There are also established affiliations with Pharmacy, Dentistry and Otolaryngology that strengthen our interdisciplinary team and experience.

Our primary training sites include Wisconsin Sleep and the the William S. Middleton Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital Clinical Sleep Program. Trainees also access the rich learning environment of the UW-Madison Neuroscience Training Program through a semester-long course on sleep, taught by preeminent scholars in the field.   

Whether you envision a career in academics as a clinician-scientist, clinician-educator or practitioner in community sleep medicine, our program has the diversity and available mentorship to help you to attain your long-term goals.
