The AASM Foundation is committed to expanding the field of sleep medicine with highly qualified researchers and clinicians, which also aligns with the strategic goal of the AASM to expand the sleep team workforce of the future to improve access to high-quality sleep care. To ensure that there is a healthy pipeline of board-certified sleep medicine physicians, the AASM Foundation has revamped its Sleep Medicine Fellow Funding Award, formerly known as the Clinical Fellowship Rescue Funding Award, to provide funds to start or maintain a sleep medicine fellowship position in an ACGME-accredited program.
The Sleep Medicine Fellow Funding Award provides up to $130,000 of support for a one-year sleep medicine fellowship position starting in 2022. The funding for this award must be for a sleep medicine fellowship position that:
- Is at risk of losing funding
- Has previously lost funding
- Has never been funded
- Is a new position in the established sleep medicine fellowship program
Applications are due January 4, 2021. For more information and to apply for the Sleep Medicine Fellow Funding Award, visit the award page.
