Education is a central mission of Center for Sleep Science faculty. The UM Sleep Disorders Center offers a one-year, ACGME-approved fellowship in sleep medicine. This one-year program is among the largest and most well-developed in the U.S., graduating 7 newly trained sleep physicians each year. This fellowship is for qualified physicians who have trained in neurology, internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, psychiatry, family medicine, pediatrics, otolaryngology, or anesthesiology.
Physicians or scientists interested in development of careers that focus on sleep research have opportunities to apply for 2 to 3 years of training supported by an NIH T32 training program. Four such programs at UM can consider applicants who wish to pursue sleep research.
Post-doctoral fellows at the Sleep Disorders Center and others in the UM academic community can take advantage of a rich set of didactic opportunities in sleep and biological rhythms. These include weekly Sleep Disorders Center Grand Rounds; monthly Biological Rhythms and Sleep seminars; and frequent presentations within the several UM Departments involved with sleep. Each year, the Department of Neurology and Sleep Disorders Center sponsor the Michael S. Aldrich Commemorative Lecture in Sleep Medicine, which brings a nationally renowned speaker to Ann Arbor
