Stanford University ACGME Sleep Medicine Fellowship Training

The Stanford Sleep Medicine Center was the first fellowship program accredited by the American Sleep Disorders Association (ASDA). Our sleep fellowship is viewed internationally as the world's leading training program for sleep disorders medicine and thereby draws scholars and trainees from across the United States as well as from around the globe.

Our ACGME accredited fellowship is a one year clinical fellowship, sponsored by Stanford Hospital and Clinics.   A diverse faculty from multiple specialties is engaged in training fellows.   Training covers multiple aspects of sleep medicine including pharmacology of sleep, sleep disordered breathing, insomnia, narcolepsy, pediatric sleep, parasomnias, restless legs syndrome, neuro-degenerative disorders, sleep surgery, and orthodontics involving both children and adults.   To learn more about the program, contact the Program Coordinator.  To learn more about Graduate Medical Education at Stanford, please visit
