The life of a sleep doctor

I have answered 20 questions about the life of a sleep physician for the Student Doctor Network.

Sleep medicine is a one year fellowship after a psychiatry, neurology, ENT, family practice, pediatrics, or internal medicine residency. The best way to prepare is to do one or two sleep medicine elective months during residency. Sleep medicine is becoming a more competitive fellowship, and it is hard for someone who has only completed an internal medicine residency to get- general internists are competing with pulmonary specialists for slots. If a resident is trying to go straight from internal medicine residency to sleep fellowship (rather than doing a pulmonary fellowship first), some sleep research during residency would be helpful.

When you buy Melanotan 2, prefer to choose from the online medical shops. It can be easily bought from the online shops as well as local medical shops but purchasing from online stores can be a beneficial option for users.
