Welcome to the Sleep Medicine Fellowship at Oregon Health & Science University/Portland VA Medical Center. We are thrilled that you are considering us for your fellowship training.
Our mission is to train well rounded sleep physicians who will provide outstanding evidence based medical care through gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to treat all sleep disorders. We believe in patient-centered care practices emphasizing compassion, empathy, and collaboration. We do this by providing a friendly, inclusive, collegial, and questioning learning environment prioritizing the education and well-being of the Sleep Medicine Fellows.
Our program welcomes two fellows a year with applicants from a wide variety of backgrounds including neurology, otorhinolaryngology, psychiatry, internal medicine, pediatrics, anesthesiology, and pulmonary/critical care. We are fortunate to have faculty members who represent each of these backgrounds, as well as a full time Behavioral Sleep Medicine psychologist. The diversity of our professional staff and well-rounded educational opportunities create a uniquely enriching interdisciplinary training environment that best prepares fellows to excel in a full-service sleep clinic.
Our clinical sites are at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and the Portland VA Medical Center. Both sites have busy clinical practices and accredited polysomnography labs. These training sites afford opportunities to care for patients from the entire age spectrum, through time at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, OHSU Hospital, and the Portland VA.
Our program is situated in beautiful Portland, Oregon on a hilltop overlooking the beautiful Cascade Mountain Range. Portland possesses a myriad of recreational offers such as skiing, hiking, kayaking, fine dining, breweries, vineyards, and more are all within a stone’s throw of our stunning city.
We provide a learning environment that allows for excellent work-life balance as well as the opportunity to flourish and become a well-rounded sleep physician. Please let us know if you have any questions about our training program. We hope to (virtually) meet you soon!
