The Feldman Fellowship supports trainees at the undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral level (including medical residents and fellows) to perform sleep- or circadian-related research under supervision of a mentor. Feldman Fellowship Mentors must be COBRAS Members and Washington University faculty (any department/school) at Instructor or higher level. Preference will be given to research on neurodegenerative diseases, but any research with high potential impact on human diseases will be prioritized. Each Feldman Fellow must engage in full-time (40+ hrs/week) research activities for at least 8 weeks, or its equivalent (i.e., 320 hrs), and present data from the supported research at the subsequent COBRAS Symposium.

A-STEP at the Washington University Sleep Medicine Center provides standardized education and training that develops a sleep medicine knowledge base and the professional skills required of a sleep technologist. This program has been continuously accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine since 2006.
Two positions are available each year for a 1-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited Sleep Medicine Fellowship at Washington University. Applicants who have completed an ACGME accredited residency in Pediatrics, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry, Otolaryngology, or Anesthesia can apply and participate in the Sleep Medicine Fellowship Match through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).
