The scope of the position
The main task of the Education Committee (EduComm) is to establish and develop the curriculum of sleep education in collaboration with European universities and the National Sleep Societies.
A specific goal of EduComm has been to provide up-to-date theoretical education on Sleep Medicine.

- propose new initiatives for ESRS education
3 new members will be assigned for the period until the next ESRS Business Meeting held during the Sleep Europe 2024 conference in September 2024. ESRS is currently examining tenure rules for all committees and EduComm will follow these guidelines once ratified at the next Business Meeting.
Eligibility and voting procedure

The new members of the Education Committee will be selected by the current Education Committee and assigned by the Board.
