Careers in Sleep Medicine for Psychiatrists

A reader asks:
I have a question about joining the real world as a psychiatrist and sleep physician. It seems everyone is geared toward pulm/cc guys. I think I will have some benefit with a wife in a gen med practice but only if I open up my own practice. Are there jobs out there for regular shrinks?

The number of pure sleep medicine jobs has decreased over the last several years, but there are some 100% sleep medicine jobs out there that are open to all the underlying sleep medicine specialties. You can find out about these opportunities on the AASM website, the sleep journals, and the websites of recruiting firms like locumtenens.com and MDJobsite.com.

Another possibility is starting your own sleep lab. Check out the ads in Sleep Review for companies that you can hire/partner with to assist in this process.

Another possiblity is taking a psychiatry job with a hospital that has a sleep lab and make it a condition of your employment that you can read (and get paid for) the patients you refer to the lab.

Check out the Sleep forum on the Student Doctor Network for more ideas.

For any sleep researchers who are checking this ad out I have a question:

How can the current medical advice to prevent Slow-wave sleep (Stage 3 and Stage 4 NREM) in infants be safe? Slow wave sleep (SWS) is when infants die of SIDS. So, pediatricians no longer allow infants to get SWS. Is this safe?

I am not aware of any doctor trying go prevent slow wave sleep in infants. Please provide a link.
