2023 ACC Annual Report 75 Years of Innovative Education

Throughout the year, ACC remained focused on developing personalized education that helped learners advance their knowledge and optimize cardiovascular care and outcomes. From forging partnerships and committing to build a new Board for cardiovascular medicine, to creating curated virtual experiences like ACC Anywhere, we are building trusted, competency-driven content that helps clinicians unlock their full potential.

Demonstrating Excellence in CV Care

As part of its work to be the professional home for the entire cardiovascular team, ACC expanded its Certified Clinical Knowledge Exam to nurse practitioners and physician assistants practicing in the U.S. The 150-question exam provides learners with the opportunity to demonstrate their clinical knowledge, earn credit toward the FACC/AACC designation and achieve recognition. More than 100 people people took and passed the exam in its inaugural year!

Uniting to Build a New Board of CV Medicine

The ACC has joined forces with the American Heart Association, Heart Failure Society of America, Heart Rhythm Society and Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions to submit an application to the American Board of Medical Specialties, requesting an independent, self-governed medical board of cardiovascular medicine.

If approved, the new board would offer initial certification and a new competency-based approach to certification.
