AASM Site Visitor Opportunity

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine is now accepting applications for an AASM Accreditation Site Visitor to perform accreditation duties as an independent contractor of the AASM. The Accreditation Site Visitor performs all professional aspects of the sleep center accreditation process, including review of applications, performance of site visits, writing of reports, and review of responses to provisos. The AASM Site Visitor will be expected to travel and conduct a minimum of 25 site visits per year. An applicant should be a board-certified sleep specialist and, currently or in the past, served as the Medical Director/Director of an AASM-accredited sleep center. Contact the Accreditation Department at (708) 273-9325 or with a letter of interest and CV.

I have been a site visitor for the last 4 months. It's a good opportunity to examine different polysomnographic systems and see how things are done in other parts of the country.
Elgible sleep specialists are encouraged to apply.
