PGDip Sleep Medicine - Oxford Online Programme

Course Description

As a student on the PGDip in Sleep Medicine, you will spend two years engaging in a comprehensive taught programme covering the physiology of sleep, through to clinical practice and societal implications. Delivery is mostly online, with a one-week residential component. You will engage regularly in real time with class mates and teaching faculty.

Structure, content and assessment
The PGDip is a part-time course, spread over two years. During that time you will complete eight modules, providing a comprehensive overview of sleep medicine that is in line with the European Sleep Research Society's teaching and training guidelines. These modules include:

The Physiological Basis of Sleep
Introduction to Sleep Medicine and Methodological Approaches
Circadian Rhythm Disruption and Sleep
Sleep Disordered Breathing and Sleep-related Movement Disorders
Hypersomnias and Parasomnias
Sleep in Specialist Populations
Sleep and Society

Each module will be assessed by an extended essay, entailing a total of four extended essays submitted every academic year: two at the end of the second and third terms.

Pattern of teaching, learning and supervision
The course is designed to give as much flexibility as possible, whilst still providing necessary support and community. Lectures are pre-recorded and sent for you to watch in your own time, alongside any relevant reading, case studies and activities. You will join regular discussion groups; these are run using conferencing software, allowing you to interact in real-time with classmates and teaching faculty and will typically last one hour. For these sessions you will be expected to prepare short essays and/or presentations for discussion. You will also be expected to attend a week-long residential school in person at Oxford.
