ACC.21 Virtual Schedule

One of the most popular session types at the Annual Scientific Session, the ACC Intensives are a two-part series of sessions focused on new and growing areas in cardiovascular practice and use gaps in competencies and knowledge to develop sessions that will expand attendees' knowledge and understanding of the selected topics. These unique programs offer attendees the opportunity to focus on a specific area of concentration.

This year, the intensive topic will be COVID-19: Uncovering the Silver Linings, led by co-chairs Doreen Defaria Yeh, MD, FACC, and David Rizik, MD, FACC. With over fifteen presentations by experts in the field, the sessions will address topics such as vaccine development, leadership in the COVID era, advances in telehealth, and virtual conferencing and education.
