Former Fellow Highlight

“The UIC sleep fellowship is a great program that prepares trainees for the real world. The environment is supportive.”

Christina Zhang, MD Sleep Fellowship graduate 2019

I did my sleep medicine fellowship training at UIC July 2017-June 2018. It was a good training and good experience overall. The program director, attendings and staff are very friendly and helpful. They take feedback seriously and always work on improving the program. Good exposure to many patients with different sleep disorders between the rotations at the UIC sleep lab and the VA hospital. I had no issues passing the sleep medicine board on the first attempt.

Wassim Assaf, MD Sleep Fellowship Graduate 2018

” The sleep fellowship program at the University of Illinois at Chicago has provided me with a unique opportunity to achieve an excellent training in multiple aspects of sleep medicine. The program offers wide clinical and research opportunities. Faculty are diverse and prepare the fellows for an academic or private practice.”

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
