Welcome to the BSM Program

This web site is intended to provide information about our program’s research, educational, and clinical activities. If you are seeking information about participating in research, please visit

The Penn Behavioral Sleep Medicine program was established in 2008 by the chair of Psychiatry (Dwight Evans MD) in collaboration with Michael Thase MD, David Dinges PhD, and Allan Pack MD. Dr. Perlis was recruited to direct the program and to establish it as part of the vanguard for our nascent discipline. Over the last 3-4 years, our group has worked assiduously towards this goal. While much remains to be done, our program has a vigorous research base, offers a broad range of educational activities, and has a state of the art clinical service.
