ESICM webinars have become a popular online tool to help members access the best and most up-to-date research and clinical practice information… AND an opportunity to interact with top experts from across the field of intensive care medicine!

Each month, one of our scientific sections organises a one-hour interactive session led by top experts, featuring a hot topic related to clinical practice.

All registered participants can submit questions during the live session.

We also offer interactive webinars from our two representative groups, N&AHP and NEXT, as well as industry partner supported sessions.

All sessions are recorded and are made available (approximately 5 days after each live session) for active ESICM members to access freely (24/7). Find these videos below.
