Promoting excellence in Behavioral Sleep Medicine is central to the mission of Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine.

Formal credentialing in behavioral sleep medicine is an important way for professionals to objectively demonstrate a standard of knowledge to the public, industry, and other healthcare professionals. SBSM is committed to fostering the growth of BSM training broadly and BSM certification in particular.

From 2003-2008, the American Board of Sleep Medicine administered a credential examination in BSM for licensed doctoral-level healthcare providers. Following the completion of the 2008 examination cycle, the administration of the certification examination in behavioral sleep medicine was transferred to the American Board of Sleep Medicine (ABSM), an independent examining body.

The last BSM certification exam was administered in 2014. Learn more about BSM certification by the American Board of Sleep Medicine.

The Board of Behavioral Sleep Medicine (BBSM) is an independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote excellence in the multidisciplinary field of Behavioral Sleep Medicine through administering and granting credentials that are recognized throughout the world as signifying a high level of competence within health-related fields for the practice of behavioral sleep medicine.
