Our faculty and staff include sleep specialists, pulmonologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, physiologists, biomedical engineers and technologists. The Division of Sleep Medicine is in the Department of Medicine. The Division, under the direction of Charles A. Czeisler, PhD, MD, FRCP, performs research and clinical activities related to sleep and chronobiology. Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a nonprofit teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School and founding member of Partners HealthCare System, is consistently rated as one of the top ten hospitals in America by US News and World Report.
The primary missions of the Sleep Disorders Program are to deliver the highest quality patient care, expand the boundaries of medicine through research, and teach through training and continuing education. Our clinical mission is supported through the comprehensive care of patients with all forms of sleep disorders at our state-of-the-art Sleep HealthCenters. Our faculty and staff continuously seek new ways to demonstrate our leadership role in basic and clinical research, as well as product research and development. We accomplish our teaching mission through training the next generation of health care professionals and future leaders in sleep medicine and providing continuing education on sleep subjects to other health care professionals. Our staff physicians and basic scientists hold faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School.
