This 12-credit online certificate program in sleep and chronobiology aims to respond to the NIH call to facilitate learning for health professionals in the areas of clinical and theoretical dimensions of sleep and chronobiology. The courses in the certificate program aim to provide the student with fundamental information in the normative mechanisms of sleep as well as biological and environmental influences in sleep and wakefulness across the lifespan. From this foundation, additional course work focuses on diagnosis and intervention in sleep dysregulation with a particular focus on the formal sleep disorders. State-of-the-science intervention strategies are addressed from both the behavioral and pharmacologic perspectives.
