This study investigated the relationship between sleep duration and academic performance among Ukrainian students of veterinary. A cross-sectional design was used. The biodata paper and self-administered questionnaire of Vasserman P.P. were administered to first-year through third-year students at an University of Podillya (Kamyanets-Podilsky, Ukraine). Questionnaires were completed by 110 student veterinarians from 19 to 22 years old. More than 80% of student veterinarians obtained less than 7 hours of sleep at night during a typical academic week. 79% of students sleep for 1-2 hours every day during the daytime. Shorter sleep duration was associated with higher level of neuroticism, headache, sleepiness, tremor, depression, scarce memory, apathy, diarrhea, diarrhea, distraction, and other. According to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) report majority of student veterinarians had inadequate durations of sleep, defined as fewer than 7 hours while the sleep range in younger adults  is 7-9 hours. Insufficient sleep duration was associated with student health problems, scarce academic performances, asocial characteristics and evident tendency to antisocial behavior.
