Venezuela ChapterWelcome to the home of the American College of Cardiology (ACC), Venezuelan Chapter, launched in Caracas, Venezuela in August 2011, which facilitates networking between the Venezuelan Society of Cardiology (SVC) and the International Cardiovascular Community, especially the ACC members. This alliance nurtures educational and research opportunities.

A team from SVC visited the ACC Heart House in Washington, DC in 2008 to strengthen the relations between the two institutions, resulting in the creation of the ACC Venezuelan Chapter in August 2011 during the Venezuelan XLIV Congress of Cardiology in Caracas.

A Joint Session ACC-FAC-SVC is organized in each of the respective Annual Meetings.
