What happens when you bring scientists, entrepreneurs, and innovators together in a casual atmosphere? Big ideas! 

Innovation Underground is a series of free get-togethers for our members. It's a chance for you to meet like-minded individuals looking to make a difference in critical care.

Member network breakfast & New member orientation

Sometimes we just want to say thanks. The member network breakfast, held twice per year, is an opportunity for MCIRCC to honor and celebrate our members and to welcome the newest participants to the organization. It’s also a great opportunity to meet fellow researchers, engineers, clinicians, and data scientists who share the goal of shaping the future of critical care innovation.


Semi-annually, we invite leaders from all disciplines to present on a range of critical care topics such as neurologic catastrophes, sepsis and severe inflammation, trauma and combat casualty care, and cardiac emergencies. The MCIRCC Seminar Series provides great opportunity for our members to network and discuss the latest in critical care medicine.
