Primary Research and/or Clinical Focus of Laboratory

Primary Training Focus of the fellowship is to provide comprehensive clinical training in the field of clinical evaluation of patients with various sleep disorders including but not restricted to sleep related breathing disorders, narcolepsy, periodic limb movements, REM and non-REM parasomnias, insomnia, shift work and circadic disorders. Comprehensive training in adult and pediatric polysomnographic interpretation is provided. Ongoing involvement in the field of adult clinical Neurology including interpretation of EEG, will form part of the commitment. Research opportunities include clinically based research in the field of Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome, sleep apnea, periodic limb movements and possible drug trials in the field of narcolepsy. Teaching of rotating Neurology residents and technologists in training form part of the daily experience. The application of the accreditation of the fellowship by AASM is currently in progress.
