consultant registry - mary king, phd

As many of you may know, the Practice Committee section of SBSM is developing a Consultant Registry.  We have previously distributed a form for interested consultants. Several of you have responded and expressed interest in functioning as consultants to those seeking specialization in behavioral sleep medicine and in sitting for the DBSM specialty board. We will be distributing an additional follow up questionnaire to those who have expressed interest, in order to better identify areas of sub specialization for potential trainees.  The goal of this questionnaire is to facilitate trainees and consultants in matching with similar interests.
