Christina Zhang, MD Sleep Fellowship graduate 2019

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

Wassim Assaf, MD Sleep Fellowship Graduate 2018

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.

Jimmy Doumit, MD Sleep Fellowship graduate 2016

The sleep fellowship program at the University of Illinois 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.
