UNC NDSS Program Expands Student Global Outreach

UNC NDSS Program Expands Student Global Outreach

Our students participate in practicum, internships, and research projects during their time at UNC. These projects involve a wide variety of sleep topics and offer superior learning opportunities for our students. NDSS graduates state that these opportunities are “priceless.” We have expanded to allow our students to have a first hand in selecting their projects and locations to cater to their interests and to community needs. Sites include industry, educational institutions, professional societies and accrediting bodies, and many others. In particular, this past summer, one of our students completed his NDSS practicum by arranging a trip to Ethiopia where trained nine new technologists and established three EEG labs in northern Ethiopia.
