The article describes the results of the analysis of sleep disorders features in junior and senior students, which was conducted on the basis of PFUR Medical Institute. We used the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) to study sleep disorders. During the study, the features of sleep disorders were assessed according to the following components of the questionnaire: subjective assessment of sleep quality; sleep latency (the time required to fall asleep); sleep duration; percentage of time spent in bed when a person sleeps; the presence of various sleep disturbances; the taking of sleeping medicine; daytime dysfunction (violation of daytime functioning due to poor sleep quality). According to the results of the study, the hypothesis was confirmed: junior and senior students have different features of sleep disorders. Senior students are more likely to disrupt daytime functioning due to insufficient sleep duration and other sleep disorders. Junior students are tend to use sleeping medicine more often due to sleep disorders.
