Modern cardiac intensive care units (CICU) care for a much more diverse group of patients including those with cardiac and non-cardiac critical illnesses. The changing landscape of the CICU has shown the need for cardiovascular professionals with critical care expertise.  This webinar will have those currently in training programs and looking to future careers understand the increased need for all levels of cardiology critical care and the rationale for why this is becoming another specialized area for cardiologists to pursue.  It will also explain how this new area of cardiology current affects patient care for current practitioners.
