WHO WE ARE

The Carolinas-Virginias Chapter of SCCM (CVCSCCM) is a multi-professional organization of critical care practitioners in four states: North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. Our chapter is dynamic and continuously evolving with many ongoing chapter projects. We aim to foster collaboration among caregivers at a regional level for the enhancement of patient care. Members of the chapter include: physicians and physicians-in-training, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, dietitians, veterinarians, pre-hospital personnel, and industry representatives.

OUR MISSION

“To serve the needs and represent the interests of critical care practitioners, to provide opportunities for involvement in local and regional activities, and to ensure the delivery of the highest quality of care to our communities.”
