ACC has long recognized the importance and value of the cardiovascular team in producing positive patient outcomes, and nowhere is that more evident than in the planning and development of ACC.19. All CV Team members will find that ACC.19 provides them with amazing opportunities to expand their knowledge, learn about cutting-edge cardiovascular care and research advances, and network with peers. If your professional focus is on cardiovascular medicine, ACC.19 in New Orleans is where you need to be because ACC.19 is more than a meeting, it's a total immersion in what it means to be a cardiovascular professional.
ACC.19 contains 10 clinical Learning Pathways — and unique programming and events for CVT members. Attendees will find that sessions feature a wide and deep array of cardiology topics presented in diverse, interactive formats that include case presentations, debates, panel discussions, audience response systems (ARS) as well as dedicated Q and A time. Special events for CVT members provide the opportunity to meet new colleagues and share experiences. CVT attendees are invited to join their peers to learn more about ACC's CVT Section and participate in Section events and programs.
