Educate, Innovate, Network for future of critical care

The Midwest region states of Illinois, Indiana and Missouri are power houses of critical care medicine educators, innovators, and world class leaders. This regional cooperation can significantly boost learning from each other and benefit the sickest patients by improving care.

Besides networking and interaction with local leaders, the Midwest Critical Care Society aims to mentor young leaders of the future, encourage collaboration in fields of research, meet and discuss the updates of the ever enlarging field of critical care medicine.

Critical Care Medicine being an ever expanding trans-specialty, it is difficult to stay up-to-date. Every day practice changing innovation, research trials and guidelines come out and make us question – are we providing the best care to our patients? The Society will actively seek to question, discuss and critique these developments and uphold the best medical practices. Additionally, skills that are not uniformly acquired in one’s professional training can be enhanced through simulation, discussion and workshops offered throughout the year.

To share the knowledge, disseminate innovative ideas and practices by collaboration of critical care providers through research, and education, with the goal of delivering excellence at the bedside of critically ill and creating future leaders in critical care.


The proposed Midwest Critical Care Society will represent Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri. It is a multi-professional organization composed of healthcare providers within critical care. Our purpose is to promote collaboration amongst all types of caregivers in order to provide superior quality and comprehensive critical care to our communities. Chapter members include physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, pre-hospital personnel and other healthcare professionals.

The Midwest Critical Care Society’s mission is to provide opportunities for educational, scientific, and charitable promotions in order to improve patient care, outcomes, and health through a non-profit organization. Our members have the opportunity to attend educational forums, professionally network, and promote expert relationships with other healthcare providers from around the region.
