The American Academy of Sleep Medicine is accepting applications for the 2014 Mini-Fellowship Program for International Scholars. The goal of this program is to provide practical training in clinical sleep medicine to international physicians from lower-income countries who have no or minimal experience in sleep medicine, so they may develop or improve sleep health care and clinical research in this field in their respective home countries.
The International Mini-fellowship Program consists of a 5-week training program. The first week of the program will be spent at the SLEEP 2014 Annual Meeting where the fellowship participants will have an opportunity to attend up to 2 full-day postgraduate courses and a variety of general sessions. The meeting will also allow the fellows to meet and network with AASM members and faculty, as well as sleep industry leaders. The next four weeks will be spent at an AASM-accredited U.S. sleep center, involving hands-on teaching and training for the fellow.
Up to ten candidates will be selected for participation in the 2014 program. Participants must be certified physicians, with minimal experience in sleep medicine. The deadline to apply is November 4, 2013.
