The Fellow Applicant Review Committee will review and score each applicant carefully considering all items provided under scholarship, service and or education.

Each category is rated on a scale of 0-3; the lowest “0” for items that do not qualify and the highest “3” for items that show significant effort level and impact to the sleep field.

Following this review process, the panel will submit its recommendations of the approved applicants to the AASM Executive Committee. All applicants will receive a notification letter by email in Mid-March.

What is the AASM Fellow Applicant Review Committee?

The AASM Fellow Applicant Review Committee was formed to assist in evaluating fellow applications on an annual basis and submitting their recommendations to the board of directors for final approval.

The Fellow Membership cycle is now closed and will reopen in October 2024.
