The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) is committed to behavioral sleep medicine, an important and first-line therapeutic option for insomnia as well as a growing area of interest in sleep medicine.

In addition to educational opportunities in behavioral sleep medicine, the AASM offers a certification examination each June at the SLEEP Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies. Recently, the administration of the certification examination in behavioral sleep medicine was assumed by the American Board of Sleep Medicine. Also, the eligibility requirements have been expanded and the format of the examination has been revised to better promote behavioral sleep medicine and foster the growth of individuals certified in behavioral sleep.
