The iCritical Care Podcasts feature in-depth interviews with authors from the Society’s journals, Critical Care Medicine and Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, as well as with prominent members of the critical care community. In this role, Dr. Weinstein will assist in developing content for podcasts and conducting interviews, focusing on medical topics within adult critical care.

Launched in 2005, the iCritical Care Podcast was among the first medical podcasts featuring journal content and is commonly ranked among the top 20 medical podcasts on iTunes. Dr. Weinstein joins colleagues Jeffrey Guy, MD, MD, MSc, MMHC, iCritical Care Editor, and Margaret Parker, MD, FCCM, Associate iCritical Care Editor.

“I am very excited to take part in furthering the education of critical care medicine,” says Dr. Weinstein.  “Podcasts are a great instrument to add to our toolbox of traditional teaching methods.  They conveniently allow healthcare providers to obtain the latest medical information how and when they need it.”

With nearly 16,000 members in more than 100 countries, SCCM is the only organization that represents all professional components of the critical care team.
