Continuing Medical Education (CME)

The primary Harvard Continuing Medical Education (CME) live offering in sleep medicine, Sleep Grand Rounds, is organized through the HMS and the BWH Divisions of Sleep Medicine and occurs once monthly throughout the academic year. Partners HealthCare System designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. For more information, please visit the Sleep Grand Rounds main page.

Additionally, an annual CME course in sleep medicine entitled “Sleep!” is held, directed by Dr. Milena Pavlova, with co-director Dr. Sandra Horowitz.  The course is designed to provide in-depth overview of sleep physiology, major sleep disorders, and relationship of sleep to other disorders.  The course faculty is selected among sleep experts from several Harvard – affiliated hospitals with superb national and international reputation, including Dr. Martin A Samuels, Charles A Czeisler, Susan Redline and many others. The target audience is primarily clinicians (neurologists, psychiatrists, internists) who want to expand their knowledge about sleep.  Sleep specialists who are interested in updating or refreshing their knowledge are welcome. Register for 2016 Sleep! here.

In 2008, the Division of Sleep Medicine launched its first online CME modules, in collaboration with the Harvard Medical School Department of Continuing Education, and in connection with its  "Healthy Sleep" web site, which launched on January 31, 2008 as part of its Sleep and Health Education Program.

The Division of Sleep Medicine also is committed to improving medical education, and to that end has developed an educational teaching module on Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Daytime Sleepiness.
