Target audience: Neurodiverse physicians

This presentation is for neurodiverse physicians who want to understand and overcome their unique barriers to sleep to optimize their performance and satisfaction in work and life.


Insufficient sleep is an epidemic in our society and when we are sleep-deprived, it affects every aspect of our lives – how we think, feel, and function at work. Few work settings pose a higher risk potential when sleep is compromised than that of medical doctors whose decisions routinely impact human lives. Yet, adequate sleep is an often neglected area for doctors. Their training is typically comprised of sleep-compromising schedules. For the neurodiverse physician, these challenges may be amplified by their very physiology in ways we seldom understand and discuss. This presentation is designed to empower neurodiverse physicians by deepening their understanding of the function of adequate sleep for their performance, how their unique gifts and challenges may impact their sleep quality, and how to work through their own and environmental barriers to best achieve adequate sleep.
