What Makes You Proud to Be in Critical Care? 

SCCM is always looking for stories that inspire connection. We are collecting stories that answer the question: “What makes you proud to be in critical care?”

Critical care practitioners have all been challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic. Shared experiences bring the community together. Help inspire your colleagues, patients and the future generation of critical care practitioners.

Share your story today!

SCCM will share stories in celebration of NCCARM and all year round.
