Promotional Symposia
These nonaccredited programs, independently developed and directly sponsored by industry, are presented in an educational format that will provide insight on new or controversial developments affecting most intensive care units. Held off-site from the convention center, promotional symposia may not conflict with SCCM programming. There are multiple dates and times available.

 Medical Education Grants


Receive acknowledgment as an educational partner by supporting the educational programming at Congress through an unrestricted medical education grant. All Congress programs are packed with essential clinical information to keep practitioners informed on various critical care topics. Choose from the following:

CE/CME Symposia
Held in the morning and during lunch, these programs promote improvement in healthcare and give a balanced view of available therapeutic options for all intensive care practitioners. The CE/CME symposia are supported by unrestricted independent educational grants and comply with industry guidelines. SCCM is the CE provider for these events, and all presentation topics, faculty and objectives are approved by SCCM to ensure that content is unbiased and meets established goals. For an incremental fee, enduring material options are available to reach learners beyond the live event.

Educational Sessions
Support a concurrent session or select pre-Congress courses. Options available include supporting a live session, an enduring webcast (which includes CE/CME for a year) or both. Because these are CE/CME sessions, no influence by industry is allowed in the program content or speaker selection.
