Critical Care Medicine Section

The primary purpose of the Critical Care Medicine Section (CCMS-AAEM) will be to serve as a forum for those interested in critical care to exchange information among the group, as well as with fellow AAEM members.

The section will help develop critical care educational opportunities at Scientific Assembly and other sponsored venues, and be a centralized point of communication for medical students, residents, and attendings.

The section will work closely with AAEM/RSA to provide mentorship to medical students and residents who are interested in critical care fellowships.
