Sleep Center

Our program features Pulmonary/Sleep Medicine specialists and Nurse Practitioners who provide in-patient and office consultations, a Sleep Medicine Clinic staffed by Pulmonary Fellows and Sleep Medicine Fellows who are supervised closely by a Pulmonary/Sleep Medicine Attending physician, and a Sleep Laboratory. The Pulmonary Sleep Laboratory is situated at the Montefiore Westchester Square Campus. The laboratory is fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and all its technologists are board certified respipolysomnography technologists. Our program interacts closely with several other Montefiore services including Internal Medicine, Bariatric Surgery, Cardiology, Neurology, and the Sleep-Wake Disorder Center of the Department of Neurology.

The Pulmonary Sleep Medicine Program is one of three Montefiore services (the others Neurology and Pediatrics) who combine to form, administer, and conduct the Montefiore Sleep Medicine Fellowship, a one-year accredited fellowship in sleep medicine that allows graduate Fellows to sit for Sleep Medicine Board examination.

The Pulmonary Sleep Medicine Sleep Lab is a clinical training site for the Polysomnographic Technology program at Kingsborough Community College. Trainees in our lab can fulfill the clinical requirements needed to sit for their Board Certification examination to become Board Certified Respipolysomnographic Technologists.
