About our Courses

How it all started…

Instituto do Sono’s programs were first created in 1998, given the need for better training of sleep professionals.

The initiative was groundbreaking and broadly accepted. Our multidisciplinary team’s experience in research, care and education led to the creation of new courses.

Since then, professionals and students from all over the country who are interested in the field have had the opportunity to qualify themselves with the best sleep study professionals.

Other differentials

  • We are a world reference in sleep and our structure allow us to provide the students, in a complementary manner to their theoretical activities, the possibility of learning by practicing.
  •  The Capacitation Courses in Medicine and Sleep Dentistry have specific outpatient teaching facilities, at which the students can access the clinical practice and their patients, to a full and free assistance.
  • Programs in Pediatrics and Dentistry have specific ambulatory teaching clinics. Students have access to clinical practice while the patients recruited have access to complete care, free of charge.
  • The Technology Course in Polysonogram includes following up practical activities from the routine of Brazil’s biggest sleep laboratory.
  • The students may follow up the ambulatory activities of the Instituto do Sono’s specialties.

Reference in Sleep

Nowadays, we offer more than 20 courses, with different approaches and workload, educating professionals all over the country. The courses, ministered by renowned professors and international guests, grant access to the latest in terms of knowledge and technology, contributing to improvements in the quality of population assistance.

We graduate technologists, physicians and all other health professionals who work in the area of sleep and in the sleep laboratories in the whole of Brazil. Promoting the apprenticeship as a reference, we accomplish the mission of producing, applying and propagating knowledge.
