Sleep medicine is a rapidly growing specialty. The course is of interest to a wide range of physicians (e.g. respiratory physicians, neurologists, psychiatrists, paediatricians, geriatricians, GPs), specialists who are focused on ‘behavioural sleep medicine’ (e.g. clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists) as well as applied sleep scientists, sleep technologists, and nurses.
The team have received a Medical Sciences Division Teaching Excellence Awards project grant. The Teaching Excellence Awards scheme has operated since 2006 and recognises and rewards excellence in teaching, the organisation and development of teaching, and support for teaching and learning, within a research-intensive environment.
The award will cover the costs of piloting some new video conferencing software called Zoom, and help them develop their lecture recording technology.
