New ACGME Approved Pediatric-Focused Sleep Fellowship Program
Children's Mercy Hospital, Kansas City, MO

About Sleep Medicine: Sleep disorders are common and can have significant consequences for individuals and society at large. Sleep medicine is a medical subspecialty that is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. The first sleep clinics opened in the 1970s, and today there are more than 6,000 board-certified sleep physicians. Training to become a sleep physician includes a one-year fellowship in sleep medicine, which may be entered from a number of different fields: internal medicine, psychiatry, pulmonology, neurology, family medicine, otolaryngology, pediatrics, or anesthesiology. Sleep physicians spend their time seeing patients in their offices, interpreting sleep studies, and participating in research and teaching activities. For more information, check out: choosesleep.org.

We are proud to announce a new ACGME-accredited pediatric-focused sleep fellowship training program at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. The program provides sleep medicine training across the entire age spectrum, but there is a particular emphasis on pediatrics with the majority of training taking place at our children’s hospital. The sleep fellow will spend 60% in pediatric sleep medicine rotations at Children’s Mercy Hospital (CMH) and 40% in adult sleep medicine rotations (at University of Kansas Medical Center and Truman Medical Center).

Our expanding pediatric sleep group consists of 5 pediatric sleep physicians (3 pediatric pulmonary/sleep providers, 1 pediatric/sleep provider, and 1 med-peds/pulmonary critical care provider), 1 full time dedicated sleep psychologist, 2 nurse practitioners and 1 full time CPAP coordinator/educator. Our pediatric sleep lab provides a full range of sleep study services with 6 beds open 7 nights per week and plans for 2 additional portable units. We collaborate closely with our ENT physicians, who perform targeted advanced sleep apnea surgery with drug-induced sleep endoscopy. We are the hosting institution for the Pediatric Sleep Case Conference and multiple research opportunities within our group are available.

The fellow’s adult training experience will be obtained at University of Kansas Medical Center and Truman Medical Center. Both of these adult training sites have accredited sleep centers and busy sleep clinic practices. The University of Kansas has a new hypoglossal nerve stimulator program as well as sleep neurology. Truman Medical Center serves a different patient population mix, and has a high volume of patients with sleep related breathing disorders and chronic insomnia.

This is a great one-year opportunity for residents or other pediatricians with an interest in sleep.  It is also a valuable one-year experience for those transitioning to other fellowship programs with time in between, particularly those who are pursuing pediatric pulmonology, pediatric critical care, or other subspecialties.  Fellows will be board-eligible in sleep medicine upon completion of this training.  Interested individuals may contact us for additional information.
