PCICS was formed to provide an international professional forum to promote excellence in pediatric cardiac critical care medicine. The founders of the society launched our inaugural membership campaign in 2003. By the end of 2005, we had held our first Symposium, which will be an annual professional development conference, and had grown to 250 members in 12 nations.
We seek participation by healthcare professionals dedicated to acquiring knowledge and improving practice for our critically ill patients with congenital and acquired heart disease.
