The Sleep examination subcommittee has met in order to plan future prospects for the ESRS somnologist examination. The next examination will be organized in Basel during the 2018 ESRS meeting. The number of the questions will be increased from 75 to 100 and include now also case-oriented questions, questions on pediatric sleep, and a practical part. More detailed information on the updates will be given at the ESRS website. In addition to the ESRS Textbook, some new material will be included, and the threshold level will be risen from 50 to 60%.
