The one-year Sleep Medicine Fellowship at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, provides comprehensive training to equip fellows with the expertise needed to manage a sleep disorders center, pursue academic endeavors, and offer specialized care for a wide range of sleep disorders.

We have a collaboration with Phoenix Children's Hospital for pediatric sleep rotations. There are rotations with other specialties including otorhinolaryngology and neurological movement disorders.

Our fellow can rotate at other Mayo Clinic sites in Rochester, Minnesota, and Jacksonville, Florida, for increased exposure to specialty areas such as sleep dentistry.

You will have multiple opportunities to participate in research ranging from independent projects to clinical trials. You will be assigned a research mentor and you will have dedicated and protected research time including two weeks for a research rotation to provide ample time for projects.
