Advance your cardiovascular knowledge with ancillary events — additional events that are independently organized and offered by a company, organization or non-profit other than the ACC and held on the days immediately before, during or after ACC.17.
Independent Certified Sessions are educational programs organized by a non-profit organization that offer continuing medical education (CME), continuing nursing education (CNE) and/or continuing education (CE) credit and for which no commercial support has been received. Check back for additional information.
Prime Time Events are offered by companies and organizations at various venues throughout Washington, DC. Be sure to check back frequently to see the non-certified educational events that you'll want to add to your ACC.17 schedule.
