Hi! It seems like most of this forum is pretty quiet as of late. I'm hoping there are at least some people out there who are still browsing this rather "sleepy" forum. Anyone applying this year? Any helpful tips/recommendations about programs would be awesome.

I’m applying this year. A little nervous about the job market though.

Sleep has a struggling job market with COVID and even prior to COVID. I am applying only cause I like sleep, not worried about pay or job prospect. When does the sleep application review and interview invite begins? Timeline says program won't receive application until Aug 12. Is that True for sleep also?

Do you plan on practicing sleep or just want the training?

It is the same for sleep. You can work on applications and even submit but programs won't start to review until Aug 12 (even if you submit prior to that date, applications will be time-stamped "Aug 12" when released).

I'm also a little nervous about job aspects but my original plan regardless was to maybe do half general peds (I'm a pediatric resident) and half sleep medicine (peds-focused if possible).

Preparing my list of programs at this time. Any one know how the Baylor Program in Houston, Texas is now? There was a comment on here some years ago that was bashing on the program and how fellows are overworked, etc.

It would have been better if I would have waited little longer. I had non busy rotation last week so I went ahead and already applied.

The group has been remarkably silent. I am hoping to start hearing for interviews by the third week of this month.

Hello. I'm a Peds resident too and applying this year. I recently spoke to one of the alumni at my program (She is now doing full time Peds Sleep, no adults), She said coming from Peds has its perks as most adult trained docs do no want to see kids so they'll always want a Peds Sleep person. I think in a year from now there should be more job openings.

Lets start compiling a list once we start receiving interviews. Hope we hear something by the end of this week. When would be match day for sleep fellowship? Is it the same as last year or things have changed because of COVID?
