The Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine and Technology will offer a board review course for Sleep Board Certification on October 23-25, 2010. This 3-day course stresses the knowledge that is essential for success on the exam.

The board exam is set to take place November 10, 2011, and the application process will be open from March 1, 2011, to June 1, 2011. To prepare for the exam, the Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine and Technology has developed a tailored course offering, which has been made specifically to prepare for the national sleep board exam.

The Sleep Medicine Board Review Course features course codirector Meir Kryger, MD, FRCPC, well-known sleep specialist, researcher, and educator. Kryger is currently the director of Sleep Research and Education at Gaylord Sleep Medicine, and clinical professor of medicine, University of Connecticut. The review course faculty will also include the school’s founder and director, Russell Rosenberg, PhD, ABSM, as course codirector.

The 3-day weekend review course gives physicians a boost in their preparations for the exam by reviewing a variety of clinical sleep disorders and sleep sciences as well as other skills that will be tested. The instructors mix lectures with case-based presentations and technology to create a study experience that gives doctors a solid foundation for final preparations.

In addition to the 3-day board review course, the Atlanta School offers an optional 1-day Digital Records Review Course with Terrence Malloy, RPSGT, on October 22, 2010. This precursor to the main course gives physicians an extra day to examine records and practice scoring to ensure complete coverage of the material to be presented on the exam.
