Pulmonary & Critical Care Fellowship Programs


Sleep Medicine


The goal is to prepare young scientists to pursue research careers addressing mechanisms and treatment of human disease, with a focus on sleep disorders. The cohesiveness of the interdisciplinary program stems from the highly collaborative nature of well-funded faculty in several departments.

Research is an integral part of the sleep medicine fellowship at the University of Chicago. Sessions on quality improvement research are led by Dr. Lucas Kimmig, PD for the PCCM fellowship program. Academic time is built into non-call weeks as protected time to pursue scholarly activities. Sleep medicine fellows participate in scholarly/research activities within the fellowship as required by the ACGME. These include research abstracts/manuscripts, poster presentations, case reports, book chapters, media articles, etc. with the guidance of the sleep medicine faculty.

The fellowship is approved by the ACGME for 4 positions, T32 training grants are available to selected applicants who wish to pursue an additional year of training.

In addition, because of its strong Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine training programs, the University of Chicago has been one of few institutions collaborating with ATS through the ATS ASPIRE Fellowship. This program aims to develop the next generation of pulmonary and sleep physician-scientists and leaders.
