Highest standard of care
Certification by the American Board of Sleep Medicine (ABSM) stands for the highest standard of care in clinical sleep medicine and sleep technology. 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.
The role of sleep technologists is important to the diagnostic and therapeutic services provided to sleep disorder patients.
