The field of sleep medicine has been a fast growing multidisciplinary field for the past 20 years. There are 58 specific sleep related diagnostic codes and 18 specific procedure codes. There have been remarkable advances made in this field as a result of research conducted in its participating disciplines, which include internal medicine, pediatrics, adult and pediatric pulmonary medicine, neurology, psychiatry, otolaryngology and dentistry. Because of this growing body of specialized knowledge, specific board certification has been developed by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Fellowships leading to board eligibility are now accredited by the American Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
