Mission Statement:

The Boston University Sleep Medicine Interest Group (BUSMIG) aims to cultivate medical student interest in the growing field of sleep medicine and the treatment of sleep disturbances and disorders. While practitioners of various medical specialities, such as neurology, pulmonology, and psychiatry, can get a certification in sleep medicine, the field is quickly becoming an independent medical speciality in its own right. Through opportunities, such as research, community outreach, networking, and shadowing with sleep specialists, we seek to connect students with the resources to explore the multifaceted field of sleep medicine.
