I was appointed to and completed the T32 training while I was a rising second year medical student at Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine in North Carolina. I am currently a third year psychiatry resident at Allegheny Health Network and am one of the chief residents this academic year. My interest in sleep first developed in undergrad, but the T32 grant allowed me to take a deeper dive into the specifics of sleep architecture as well as the major tenants of sleep medicine. Working as a psychiatrist, sleep is something that is discussed at every single patient encounter and I feel that my training at UPMC was invaluable. Not only do I feel that I am able to have a better informed discussion about my patients’ sleep habits with them, but I also feel more equipped to develop appropriate treatment plans for these concerns. I cannot recommend this program enough for those considering the field of psychiatry.
