A Day in the Life of an ACC FIT

Some may ask how Nkechinyere “Nkechi” Ijioma, MD, a first-year interventional fellow at The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, finds the time to do it all. She is a member of ACC’s Fellows in Training (FIT) Section Leadership Council, the FIT representative for the ACC Minnesota Chapter, editor-in-chief of the FIT Section homepage, ACC.org/FIT, a member of the College’s Leadership Academy, a roving reporter for ACC’s FITs on the GO video blog, and more.

“It is very feasible to serve the ACC in different capacities, and still undergo a busy cardiovascular fellowship and sub-specialty training,” notes Ijioma, whose time at the Mayo Clinic is predominantly spent in the cardiac catheterization lab performing procedures, and in the outpatient Cardiovascular Exam Clinic once a week.
