Sleep Surgery Center Director Dr. Raj Dedhia is highly invested in education. In addition to his teaching activities involving medical students, residents, and fellows, he publishes regularly and is a frequent speaker at national meetings of such organizations as the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery, and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

Otolaryngology Residency

Dr. Dedhia trains Emory otolaryngology residents in sleep medicine and sleep surgery at the Emory Clinic, in the operating room, and in classroom sessions.

Sleep Medicine Fellowship

The Emory Sleep Center of the Department of Medicine offers a one-year, post-doctoral Sleep Medicine Fellowship. The ACGME-approved program, directed by Nancy A. Collop, MD, teaches the appropriate technical skills and ability to interpret polysomnography and other diagnostic tools used in sleep medicine.

The sleep surgery module of the sleep medicine fellowship is led by Dr. Dedhia, and covers advanced sleep surgery techniques, including drug-induced sedated endoscopy, septorhinoplasty, expansion sphincter pharyngoplasty, hypoglossal nerve stimulation, and maxillo-mandibular advancement.

Otolaryngology fellows accepted into the sleep fellowship will spend 20% of their time teaching sleep surgery. Training locations include Dr. Dedhia's general sleep medicine clinic at the Emory Sleep Center clinic, the operating room, and the classroom.

Dr. Dedhia at raj.dedhia@emory.edu is the sleep surgery contact for the fellowship. To apply to the sleep medicine fellowship, contact Nancy Collop or Program Coordinator Linda Howell.

Current Sleep Medicine Fellow

Dr. Graeme Mulholland is the 2018-2019 sleep medicine and surgery fellow at Emory University. He completed his medical degree and residency in otolaryngology–head & neck surgery at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. His strong interest in both sleep medicine and surgery is reflected in his various research endeavors and associated presentations at national and international scientific meetings.

Emory's unparalleled breadth and depth of clinical exposure to sleep disorders attracted Dr. Mulholland to the program, as did the knowledge that working with Emory's world-renowned sleep medicine faculty would give him the experience to confidently practice the entire spectrum of treatment options for sleep disorders.

Dr. Mulholland's particular focus is managing obstructive sleep apnea in patients who are unable to tolerate positive airway pressure. By working with Dr. Dedhia, he will learn promising diagnostic and surgical treatments, including drug-induced sleep endoscopy, maxillomandibular advancement, and hypoglossal nerve stimulation surgery. His 12-month fellowship at the Emory Sleep Center should position him to become a future leader in the field of sleep medicine and surgery.
