ACC.21 Virtual Schedule

As a Fellow in Training or Early Career Professional at ACC.21, you will find the tools you need to address the complex field of health care and achieve success in your profession. ACC.21 opens a door to the whole of cardiovascular medicine in one place — the opportunity to find mentors, network with colleagues, find training positions and jobs, and gain insight into non-clinical aspects of cardiology, all while keeping up to date on current medical advances and research.

At ACC.21, you'll be among the first to hear the Late-Breaking Clinical Trial results that may transform the practice of your specialty. Plus, don't miss the LBCT deep-dives as the experts review the impact of the trials. FITs will also find this year's intensive sessions of interest. COVID-19: Uncovering the Silver Linings (session 51 and 52) will cover topics such as vaccine development, leadership in the COVID era, advances in telehealth, and virtual conferencing and education. Plus, don't miss the annual Bishop Lecture Keynote: Defining Priorities: Bringing Health Equity to the Frontlines of Healthcare. In addition, the Pharmacology Program will provide FITs with the opportunity to focus on improving outcomes through the use of new agents (session 102), tackling cardio-diabetes (session 104), and advances in cardio-oncology (session 105).

FITs interested in interventional cardiology should mark their calendars for the Fellows Bootcamp focused on structural heart disease and explores controversies in TAVR with both surgeon and interventionalist's perspectives (session 639), and a case-based review of coronary and peripheral disease management (session 713).
