SCCM Connect
Log in with your SCCM Customer ID to access SCCM Connect, a new collaborative space to connect members of the critical care community with common interests. This space will combine the functionality of the iRoom and eCommunity.

A specialty in critical care medicine and neuroscience provides the foundation for the Neuroscience Section. This section educates and promotes the interdisciplinary practice of critical care medicine by neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroanesthesiologists, and other healthcare professionals. The section advises the Society on matters pertaining to neuroscience and supports the research and practice of neuroscience and critical care medicine.

The Neuroscience Section provides members with the opportunity to network with critical care colleagues, influence the neuroscience profession, and strengthen leadership skills. In addition, one can contribute to both the section and SCCM at large through the Neuroscience Section.
