Polysomnography Clinical Education
Courses in both the certificate and associate degree programs require clinical practice education. The purpose of clinical practice is to provide students with an opportunity to gain experience in performing polysomnography while under the supervision of a clinical instructor. Clinical practice will include day and night rotations and will generally be 8 to 12 hours in length.
