The Fellows in Training Representatives sit on the Iowa ACC Strategic Council. The FIT Council will be a liaison between the Iowa Chapter leadership and the fellows in the state. The co-chairs and assistant chair will serve the interests of the fellows and see how the ACC can meet their needs. They will also represent the interests and needs of leadership with the fellows and involve the fellows.
The Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC) designation has long stood for excellence in cardiovascular medicine and a commitment to the highest standards of care. Now, the FACC designation – and the prestige it confers – are closer than ever before.
The ACC is proud to offer a new pathway to FACC, one that considers your service to the College and the cardiovascular community, in addition to education and publications, to determine your eligibility for the FACC designation.
We encourage you to use the FACC Eligibility Calculator to see whether you qualify.
