The Society of Critical Care Medicine

Welcome to the CRITICAL CARE Section Homepage


The practice of critical care and in-hospital care is a team sport, as is the simulation training. Critical care simulation is varied and encompasses training rapid response teams, critical care nursing, multidisciplinary in situ ICU, difficult airway management, and team management in trauma/ emergency medicine.  This group is to provide support and ideas involving critical care simulation.
The Critical Care Section welcomes a diverse and multidisciplinary group of educators and healthcare providers who offer critical care training to a wide range of learners. Our members desire research collaboration, learning about simulation techniques from each other, and sharing/ developing new curriculum.
