About this section

The Critical Care Medicine Section’s purpose is to provide a forum for the discussion of critical care and related subjects, to enhance the relationships between critical care and other specialties and to provide a means by which members of the Section receive continuing medical education whilst trainees benefit from courses specifically designed to assist their needs.

Section Council members

Section meetings and conferences are usually organised by members of the Section Council, led by the Section President and often in collaboration with specialist societies.
