OBJECTIVES: A 3.5-hour workshop was developed to teach family medicine medical students about sleep disorders. DESCRIPTION: This family medicine clerkship requirement engages students in role-plays and provides them with didactic information about common sleep problems. EVALUATION: Fifty-one students completed questionnaires assessing their knowledge prior to the workshop, 2 weeks and 6 months after the workshop, and their clinical behavior after the workshop. CONCLUSIONS: A role-play-based workshop is an effective, fun way to improve students' sleep knowledge and skills. Students retain that information over a 6-month period and are able to apply it during their clinical clerkships.
