UWA graduate certificate in adult sleep medicine

Sleep disorders are increasingly recognised as a worldwide public health concern. This has lead to a rapid growth in the number of clinical sleep laboratories. As a result there is a tremendous shortage of people qualified to work in these laboratories. This shortage will continue as new sleep labs open every year.

The Graduate Certificate in Adult Sleep Science is intended as a University level training program for anyone with a background in science or allied health wishing to be trained to work as a sleep technologist (sleep scientist). The course will also be of interest to individuals who simply wish to better understand the scientific principles that underpin adult sleep science.

The course has been designed to suit both international and local students who require the option of undertaking intensive training to minimise concurrent living costs while undertaking continued education. It is comprised of two online units able to be completed by anyone with internet access, and two intensive laboratory-based units which requires students to reside in Perth for a period of two weeks.
