The Importance of Sleep Medicine Education: Anita Shelgikar, MD, MHPE

Sleep medicine education was evaluated in a recently published study that enrolled 21 health professions trainees in a 2-day boot camp. The study cohort included 14 sleep medicine fellows who were about to enter their fellowship, with investigators concluding that baseline knowledge of sleep medicine is higher than originally anticipated and the boot camp aided in a statistically significant improvement in both the Assessment of Sleep Knowledge in Medical Education Survey (2.9 points [±2.1]; P = .004) and Dartmouth Sleep Knowledge and Attitude Survey (2.5 points [± 3.0]; P = .001).
