The Society of Intensive Care Medicine (SICM) is the representative body for intensive care medicine professionals in Singapore. Its objectives are to advance the knowledge and practice of intensive care medicine in Singapore. It strives to achieve this by improving and providing education in intensive care medicine and by encouraging and supporting research activities in this area.
The Society played a key role in the development of the next generation of intensivists via the setting up of a national multidisciplinary intensive care medicine training programme, in conjunction with the Ministry of Health. The Society is also active in organising courses related to intensive care, such as the SICM SymPosium (SISPO), the Fundamental Critical Care Support Course, and other continuing medical education (CME) meetings, culminating in the annual SG-ANZICS Intensive Care Symposium.
Meanwhile, the Society’s research arm, the National Investigators for Clinical Epidemiology and Research (SICM-NICER), facilitates and supports multi-centre studies within Singapore and beyond.
