Graduate Diploma in Dental Sleep Medicine
This course is specifically aimed at providing dental practitioners with formal training in sleep medicine to complement clinical training in the use of oral devices used in the treatment of sleep apnoea. In addition to theoretical knowledge, students assess and report the progress of actual cases.
Although the course is totally online, students are assumed to have access to a sleep laboratory or clinic near their home or practice, where they can develop a relationship with a local respiratory physician or dedicated sleep physician who can act as a mentor as well as facilitate sleep laboratory visits.
