Fellows in Training

Welcome to the Fellows-in-Training section of the Pennsylvania Chapter, American College of Cardiology website. While enrolled in a Pennsylvania training program, we hope you will participate in the PaACC FIT activities for interaction, networking, collaboration and forums for those in cardiovascular training programs within the state.  Contact a Fellow Representative if you would like to get involved with the Pennsylvania Chapter of the ACC.

MEMBERSHIP IN THE PaACC AND THE ACC
FITs receive complimentary membership in the ACC and the Pennsylvania Chapter through training directors, who will submit your information to us so that you may receive complimentary membership in the College for the duration of your training. Questions? Contact ACC’s Kristin West at kwest@acc.org.

How is professional social media useful to FITs?

Social media is an important way for Fellows to network, stay current on news and new studies, and build your reputation and circle of influence.  The world of social media can be overwhelming, but it is also informative, engaging, and leads to relationship building.
