Sleep Medicine Fellowship Program


‌The Division of Sleep Medicine (DSM) is under the aegis of the Department of Internal Medicine of the Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS). In 1986, the DSM helped establish the first sleep disorders center in Virginia (and the second on the East Coast) to be accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

  • Since 1980, nationally recognized sleep medicine experts at EVMS have been diagnosing and treating patients with sleep disorders and publishing and presenting their state-of-the art research in peer-reviewed journals and at national and international conferences.      
  • The EVMS DSM has been selected as a testing site for clinical research on numerous pharmacological agents before they come to market.
  • The EVMS DSM has also established recognition for studies on highway safety designed to evaluate fatigue and sleepiness using a driving simulator.
