The Sleep Medicine Board Review Course is a two-and-a-half-day course during which an expert faculty of basic researchers, academicians and clinicians at the forefront of the field will present a broad review of sleep medicine. The topics covered mirror the ABMS sleep medicine examination content areas. The course includes a mixture of didactic sessions on basic sleep mechanisms and evaluation of polysomnograms, case-based lectures on the entire range of sleep disorders in the International Classification of Sleep Disorders, Second Edition and question-based presentations.
All attendees will be provided with complimentary access to the AASM online sleep medicine practice examination at the completion of this course. This newly revised six-part online exam consists of 150 questions in a variety of topics and features instant feedback for each question, a built-in reading list and a printable summary guide for future study.
