AASM Launches Online CME System for SLEEP and JCSM

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) is pleased to announce an enhancement to its Continuing Medical Education (CME) offerings: new online post-test and management systems for the journals SLEEP and Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine (JCSM). The CME site for SLEEP is now live via www.journalsleep.org and the CME site for the next issue of JCSM will be live on February 15, 2009, via www.aasm.org/jcsm/.

The AASM, through this comprehensive CME site, provides journal subscribers with a way to fulfill their CME requirements, at their convenience, by online self-study and testing based on selected journal articles. The focus of the journal-based CME program, including each article chosen for the program and the post-test, is to educate readers on current developments in the science of sleep research and sleep medicine. Selected articles are designated online with a CME symbol.
