Week 8:
Mayo Clinic Sleep Center

August 8, 2012 | As this week began I really started┬áto get into the┬átempo of independent CAP scoring and only managed to finish one very heavily fragmented sleep record. Part of the reason that it took so long was because I had to manually re-score every event the previous team labeled one at a time which slowed down the […]

Week 7:
Mayo Clinic Sleep Center

August 1, 2012 | This week began on a Tuesday for me after a long week of relaxing and working out. One of my secondary goals for the summer was to get in the habit of having a part time work out routine so that I can stay in shape better and that plan has been succeeding fantastically. I […]

Week 6:
Mayo Clinic Sleep Center

July 31, 2012 | As the sixth week of my lovely stay at the Mayo Clinic Sleep center began, we were continuing to work on the remediation of our CAP Gold standard scorings and RSWA Gold standard scorings. It has been taking an enormously large amount of time to fully go through one of my fellows students and my […]

Week 5:
Mayo Clinic Sleep Center

July 23, 2012 | My fifth week at the Mayo Clinic passed very quickly as our activities picked up a bit. Monday was spent, with the exception of the seminar that I will discuss later, scoring REM Sleep Without Atonia (RSWA) segments on the RSWA Gold Standard that, like the CAP Gold Standard, was intended to make sure that […]

Week 4:
Mayo Clinic Sleep Center

July 12, 2012 | This last week was an odd one indeed thanks to the Fourth of July celebrations in the middle of the week. I worked my normal hours on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, but Wednesday and Thursday were off for the Fourth. Monday and Tuesday were spent with the group reading articles on the variation in CAP […]

Week 3:
Mayo Clinic Sleep Center

July 4, 2012 | This week was busier than the last. On Monday, I went to a Clinical Pathology Conference (CPC), which is an explorative look at the possible diagnoses that would have fit a particularly challenging or interesting clinical case. A variety of possible diagnoses were discussed and each was weighed pros versus cons in terms of its […]

Week 2:
Mayo Clinic Sleep Center

June 25, 2012 | In my second week of my fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, I got a hang of the work schedule. In the morning, the other summer students and I focus on reading the articles that Dr. St Louis assigns us as readings to prepare us for the next group discussion. For last week we were reading […]

Week 1:
Mayo Clinic Sleep Center

June 21, 2012 | Welcome to my blog where I will be happily posting about the exploits of my Fellowship experience at the Mayo Clinic under Dr. Erik St. Louis. I arrived at around 3:15 pm on last Monday the 11th, met Leslie, the student housing coordinator who is assisting me with my apartment and then carted everything upstairs […]
