The French Intensive Care Society (FICS) is a learned society founded in 1971.

Today it has 3500 members and operates in two main areas:

  • continuing medical education and post-university teaching,
  • promotion of clinical research and assessment of hospital-based intensive care.

Through these two objectives, the FICS, together with all those involved in intensive care, has a fundamental aim: to give intensive care its rightful place in the health system.
