Long standing history and tradition of sleep medicine
The Washington University Sleep Center opened in the 1980’s and began training fellows in the mid-1990’s. In 1999, it moved from the main Barnes-Jewish medical campus to The Chase Park Plaza building located next to the hospital where it officially became a Multidisciplinary Sleep Medicine Center, accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) in 2005. In 2014, the Multidisciplinary Sleep Medicine Center moved into newly renovated space at the Center 40 Building in Brentwood, Missouri, which is a nearby suburb of St. Louis, approximately 5 miles (10 minute) drive from the main medical campus.

Once finished with their fellowship training, our graduates have the experiences that will allow them to succeed in whatever setting they desire. Washington University in St. Louis offers a rare combination: top programs in almost all medical subspecialties, an elite academic and research institution, and a top tier medical center caring for a large volume of patients, including those with rare conditions.
