The Minnesota Regional Sleep Disorders Center (MRSDC) was founded in 1977 and has been training physicians in sleep medicine since then. Clinician scientists have made several important discoveries in the the neuroscientific and cardiopulmonary aspects of sleep in both children and adults. Most notably Drs. Mark Mahowald and Carlos Schenck discovered REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) and its relationship to Parkinson's disease. Researchers at the MRSDC continue to investigate RBD and other sleep-wake disorders. In total, over 100 physicians have received specialized training at the MRSDC. In the first year of eligibility, 2005, we were recognized as an ACGME certified training facility.
The Sleep Medicine Fellowship Program is ACGME accredited.
