Competencies in Sleep Medicine provides the knowledge and curriculum needed for a Sleep Medicine Training Program. The approach is consistent with the goals of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), which asks programs to develop specific and targeted approaches to each program that covers the material presented in the Training Program.
Authored by leaders in the field, each chapter focuses on an area of knowledge and skills in sleep medicine and offers appropriate examples of instruction and assessment. These principles and protocols for training can be used by a program to address weaknesses, assess trainees in a standardized fashion, and provide additional measurable benchmarks.
Those who judge trainee progress and achievement will find Competencies in Sleep Medicine to be the standard resource for defining and achieving student learning outcomes, while encouraging autonomous learning.
Provides competency based training program templates consistent with the goals of the ACGME
Features a companion website for supplemental materials

Competencies in Sleep Medicine provides tools and approaches for instruction in the knowledge and skills acquired during a Sleep Fellowship Program. The book content responds to the request by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for each program to develop learning goals and formative assessments of fellows in all areas of Sleep Medicine.
Authored by teaching experts, each chapter focuses on an area of Sleep Medicine, offering examples of content mapping to ACGME competencies, learning objectives, instructional methods, and assessment tools. Recall matching tests, essay questions with ideal answers, and group learning exercises can be reformulated by any program to address expertise weakness and establish measureable benchmarks.
Those who lead post-graduate programs both in the US and abroad and want to enhance trainee progress and achievement will find Competencies in Sleep Medicine invaluable in defining learning outcomes, encouraging autonomous learning, and expanding teaching expertise and tools.
