Increased disease complexities and a rapid growth in treatment options have changed the face of cardiovascular care to include a team of cardiovascular care professionals. And more and more evidence indicates that when patient care is managed by a team, outcomes improve. ACC has long recognized this reality and as a result ACC.17 offers an excellent, diverse and innovative interdisciplinary program that showcases the positive impact of participation of the entire CV team.

ACC.17 contains 11 Learning Pathways which covers the spectrum of cardiology and includes a plethora of information on every topic regardless of your specialty area. In addition, three Intensive Programs on Faculty Development, Palliative Care and Equity in Health Care, as well as international programming, special lectures, a pharmacology program and unique programming for CVT members. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear from many CVT members participating as panelists, moderators and speakers.

ACC.17 provides you with a great opportunity to network and share information with colleagues from across the country and around the world. In addition, ACC.17 features innovative, informative sessions with topics that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of cardiovascular care today.
