Sleep technology, also known as Polysomnographic Technology, is a distinct allied
health field that studies sleep-related disorders. It involves the measurement of
multiple physiological parameters during sleep, combined with observational reporting.
Polysomnographic technicians, or sleep technicians, are healthcare professionals who
work as part of a team under the general supervision of a licensed physician to assist
in the education, evaluation, and treatment of sleep disorders in patients of all
ages. This Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Polysomnographic Technology
is a 60-‐credit program that will provide
in-depth classroom instruction and fieldwork placement in a clinical sleep laboratory.
Students will be trained in all aspects of sleep medicine required to work as a professional
sleep technician. Upon graduating from this program, students will be eligible to
obtain a New York State license to practice as a Polysomnographic Technician (or Sleep
Technician), after successfully passing the nationwide RPSGT exam.
