General Information

The Sleep Medicine Fellowship Training Program at the University of Washington selects from eligible applicants on the basis of their preparedness and ability to benefit from the program. There are 3 fellowship positions available annually with 3 available fellowship tracks: General Sleep Medicine (#1918250F0), Pediatric (#1918250F1), and Otolaryngology (#1918250F2). Applicants may apply for and rank more than one track depending on their preference (Otolaryngology track is only available to Otolaryngology trained applicants).

This one-year Sleep Medicine Fellowship is designed for interested physicians who have already completed (or plan to complete) an ACGME accredited residency in Anesthesiology, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Otolaryngology, Pediatrics, or Psychiatry.

Considered in the selection process are aptitude, academic credentials, personal characteristics and communication skills.

Application Process

The following materials must be submitted via ERAS for consideration:

  • Curriculum Vitae (include college education, postgraduate training, board certifications, state licenses, visa status, bibliography)
  • 1 page statement of personal and career objectives
  • USMLE scores
  • Medical school dean's letter
  • Letters of recommendation from at least three (3) individuals who have worked with and/or supervised your training.

Once the application is complete (as described above), application folders are reviewed by the Program Director and selection committee. After this review, a decision will be made as to whether to offer an interview. Our fellowship interviews for the applicants in 2022-2023 will be held exclusively virtually.

Commitment to Inclusion and Diversity

The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. We strongly encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds as we believe that our faculty and fellows should reflect the incredible diversity of the patients we care for. 
More information about diversity in the University of Washington Department of Medicine can be found here. Fellows are invited to serve on the Department of Medicine Diversity Council and the Network of Underrepresented Residents and Fellows.

Commitment to Safety

The COVID-19 pandemic required changes to the structure of fellowship recruitment on a national level. These changes will remain for the 2022-2023 cycle. The UW Sleep Medicine Fellowship Program and the UW School of Medicine continue to support ongoing recommendations by The Coalition of Physician Accountability (CoPA).

In lieu of site visits, we are providing expanded information about our fellowship through video introductions of our main clinical sites, testimonials from our recent fellows, and links to join our didactic sessions this fall.
