Critical Care Medicine Section

Critical Care Medicine

ACEP’s Critical Care Medicine Section is dedicated to promoting clinical and education excellence, as well as providing professional and academic support, for emergency physicians working and interested in critical care medicine. Emergency medicine (EM) critical care is a growing community, and the Critical Care Medicine Section is working to serve as a clearinghouse for good ideas and productive partnerships. We strive to serve as a voice for our members, provide a tool for communication among EM intensivists and those interested in the care of the critically ill, and serve as a national platform for issues important to our group. We’d love to have you join us in our efforts!
