Accredited Behavioral Sleep Medicine Training Programs

Accreditation by the Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine (SBSM) is a voluntary program offered to Behavioral Sleep Medicine (BSM) training programs that promote excellence in the preparation of pre-doctoral, doctoral, internship/residency, and postdoctoral trainees who enter the professional practice of behavioral sleep medicine.  Programs must offer at least 1,000 hours of supervised clinical training in behavioral sleep medicine, or 500 hours in behavioral sleep medicine and 500 hours in general behavioral medicine, in addition to meeting other training and educational requirements.

Accreditation Committee

The mandate of the Accreditation Committee is to solicit new applications and carry out the accreditation procedures with the goal of increasing BSM training programs. The committee is responsible for monitoring these procedures and making recommendations for changes in the accreditation procedures and standards to the Board of Directors as needed. The committee will recommend to the Board of Directors accreditation status for these educational programs.
