Highest standard of care

Physicians, PhDs and Technologists who have achieved ABSM certification have demonstrated to their peers and to the public that they have the skills and knowledge essential for the delivery of excellent patient care. The ABSM believes higher standards for sleep medicine and sleep technology translate into better care for patients and better accountability to the public.
