Continuing Medical Education

Each year our distinguished faculty as well as invited guests present a robust series of conferences largely available for CME credit. These conferences cover a wide range of topics including the genetics of sleep, treatments of various disorders, cutting-edge research, and complex clinical cases.
A schedule of upcoming conferences is available here.

 

Enduring CME

In addition to live lectures, we offer a free on-demand, online sleep medicine course (Current Topics in Sleep Medicine) for physicians, nurses, technologists, researchers, and others interested in sleep medicine. This is a comprehensive course in sleep medicine that is available free on the web. It was developed in collaboration with the CME Office at the University of Pennsylvania and is hosted on their website. The program curriculum was developed by Dr. Ilene Rosen and all lectures were prepared by faculty at the University of Pennsylvania.
