Internal Medicine Section

 
​Members Only: Section iRoom
 
Internal Medicine is the branch of medicine that diagnoses and non-surgically treats diseases affecting the internal organs of the body. The Internal Medicine Section of the Society of Critical Care Medicine provides a forum for discussion and action on issues of importance to internal medicine intensivists.

The Internal Medicine Section is the largest section of the Society, accounting for approximately 32% of SCCM membership.
 
Internal Medicine Section members contribute to both the section and SCCM at large. Many members exhibit active involvement and assertive leadership through section committees, including Bylaws, Education, Research, Membership, Communication and Public Policy Committees. In addition to a designated seat on Council, the Internal Medicine Section is represented on many of SCCM's important committees, such as Advocacy, Strategic Planning, Research and Program Development Committees.
