Subspecialty training in sleep medicine for psychiatrists

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Sleep medicine is a multidisciplinary field with growth potential. Sleep and psychiatric disorders are comorbid. Many psychiatrists were at the forefront during the earlier years of the field and played significant roles during critical developments of the field. Today there is a shortage of psychiatrists trained in sleep medicine in the United States, with many psychiatry residents not knowing that subspecialty training in sleep medicine is an option. Psychiatrists trained in sleep medicine can bridge the gap between nonpsy-chiatric and mental health providers to increase awareness of the impact sleep disorders have on mental health and improve care of the patients.
