The objective of this collective is to openly share high level didactic content pertaining to the practice and research of critical care medicine.

We are always looking for new content to post on this page, particularly from early career professionals. Criteria for lectures should be that the subject matter be of interest to a general critical care audience and that the audio and visual media be of high quality. Please contact  Daniel Fein with inquiries regarding potential submissions.
