Short Bio: The Argentinean Association of Sleep Medicine (AAMS) was created in 1995 to promote awareness, education and research in relation to sleep and sleep disorders from a multidisciplinary perspective. Many health professionals from different health and university groups are increasingly involved in the Association and several meetings and activities were organized to improve sleep science in Argentina. During these last years, the AAMS and FLASS have been actively working to get the accreditation for the medical competence of Sleep Medicine in Argentina.
