The Sleep Medicine Fellowship at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix is one of two fellowship programs in the state of Arizona. Our sister program is the Sleep Medicine Fellowship at the UArizona College of Medicine – Tucson.
We offer a unique experience, where sleep medicine fellows learn in an academically stimulating and supportive, multidisciplinary environment. Through their studies, they will be able to interpret laboratory and in-home sleep studies, sleep laboratory management, as well as to diagnose and treat various common and rare sleep disorders. For those interested, in-depth research opportunities are also available. Graduates will be able to practice in an academic or community setting.
Our faculty is multidisciplinary and devoted to teaching with a philosophy focusing on patient-centered, evidence-based care. Our program is recognized regionally as a tertiary and comprehensive referral center for complex sleep patients, particularly those with respiratory failure, tracheostomies, complex neurological, as well as neuromuscular disorders and rare sleep disorders.
We have specialized clinics for Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia and noninvasive ventilation for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We feature specialized polysomnogram protocols in rapid eye movements (REM) sleep behavior disorder, nocturnal seizures, titration of noninvasive ventilation and accommodate bariatric patients up to 800+ lbs.
