Brazil ChapterWelcome to the home of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) Brazil Chapter.

Created in December 2009, this Chapter started with over 100 Fellows of the ACC (FACCs). Working in partnership with the Brazilian Cardiology Society (SBC), the Chapter aims to increase the quality of cardiological practice and obtain high standards in professional assistance.

Since its creation, the Chapter has promoted joint ACC/SBC symposia, held during the SBC annual Congress and ACC meetings in the U.S., creating a forum for technical knowledge sharing and international acquaintance of Brazilian cardiologists. The Chapter continued its commitment to educational advancement in May 2012 when the SBC and ACC Brazilian Chapter invited Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, MACC, delivered his course in Brazil, the first time this event has ever been hosted in Latin America.
