Certification

Promoting excellence in Behavioral Sleep Medicine healthcare is central to the mission of Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine.

Formal credentialing in behavioral sleep medicine is an important way for professionals to objectively demonstrate a standard of knowledge to the public, industry, and other healthcare professionals. SBSM is committed to fostering the growth of BSM training broadly and BSM certification in particular.

Since 2003, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine administered a credential examination in BSM for licensed post-doctoral healthcare providers.

Following the completion of the 2008 examination cycle, the administration of the certification examination in behavioral sleep medicine was transferred to the American Board of Sleep Medicine (ABSM), an independent examining body.
