The Polysomnography Program is a twelve-month advanced technical certificate (ATC) designed to prepare individuals to work in conjunction with physicians to perform and interpret sleep studies.
Graduates of accredited programs may be eligible to apply to take the examination offered by the Board of Registered Polysomnography Technologists. Employment opportunities may be found in hospitals and freestanding sleep centers.
Instruction in the Polysomnography Program is conducted on the NW Campus and Clinical internships are performed at UF Health Sleep Center at Magnolia Park.
The Committee on Accreditation for Polysomnography Technologist Education (CoA PSG) became a member of the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) in April 2003. The mission of the CoA PSG in cooperation with CAAHEP is to establish, maintain and promote appropriate standards of quality for educational programs in polysomnography technology and to provide recognition for educational programs that meet or exceed the minimum standards outlined in the accreditation Standards and Guidelines for the Accreditation of Educational Programs in Polysomnography Technology.
