Pediatrics Section

Fostered by the Society, the Section exists to further the education and promote the interest of Society members who have special interest and maintain activity in pediatric critical care. Special interest and activity in pediatric critical care is defined as devoting a significant effort toward the care of infants and children who have life threatening illness and injury. The Section will inform and advise the Society on matters related to pediatric critical care. 

The Section is a diverse group of professionals whose mission is to improve the care of critically ill infants, children and adolescents by providing multidisciplinary state of the art: research, education and clinical care.  

Members of SCCM's Pediatrics Section receive Pediatric Critical Care Medicine (PCCM). The section fee of $249 covers the cost of your section membership and subscription to PCCM.
