Sleep Medicine Course


The 2½-year Sleep Medicine Course is organized jointly by the Universities of Helsinki (Sleepwell research program at Helsinki University Medical Faculty) and Turku (Sleep and Breathing Centre at the Turku University Hospital), in collaboration with all Nordic Sleep Research Societies. CME credits will be applied from the University of Turku but are valid in other Finnish Universities, and according to local regulations also in other countries. The course will provide overview and practical tools for physicians, nurses, psychologists working in fields where patients have sleep problems, as well as students and researchers of sleep medicine and sleep research. The course combines high quality expertises in sleep research and clinical sleep medicine. The curriculum has been created and evaluated in reference with the recommendations of the EACCME.
