Current State of the Sleep Medicine Specialty Examination for Physicians and PhDs

Commencing in 2007, several of the member boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties began administration of a subspecialty certification examination for sleep medicine.

Please note that the American Board of Sleep Medicine continues to maintain and verify the records of the Diplomates of the American Board of Sleep Medicine, as it is a lifetime credential. Primary verification can be obtained in the Verification of Diplomates of the ABSM section of this website or by submitting a request by email, fax (630-737-9790) or mail (2510 North Frontage Road, Darien, IL 60561) or by calling the ABSM at 630-737-9701.
