About IASSA Certified Training Program

The INDIAN ASSOCIATION OF SURGEONS FOR SLEEP APNEA (IASSA) is happy to announce its flagship training program. The aim of this program is to facilitate skill enhancement and knowledge exchange in clinical evaluation, technological awareness, and scientific research. It also aims to help the trainees acquire appropriate exposure and expertise for effective application and use of learned skills.

The IASSA Certified Training program will be conducted in 8 centers spread across the country. These are high volume centers of excellence led by leaders in the field of sleep medicine. The centers have undergone a rigorous selection process to ensure a quality learning experience for all trainees.

It is a 2-month structured training program focused exclusively on the management of patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. Trainees will have the opportunity to follow the mentor in his clinic and operating Room and gain first-hand knowledge from this training. Trainees are encouraged to choose their center of preference and the dates as per their convenience and availability of the same. Each Mentor is allowed to host only 2 trainees per session to ensure adequate clinical exposure for the trainees.

The candidates can apply anytime throughout the year. However, the interviews for the same will be held twice a year at designated IASSA Affiliated conferences. A personal interview is a must and presents an opportunity for the candidate to discuss the training program with various mentors. The details for the same and the detailed application process is available on the IASSA Website
