Join ACC Asia chapter teams – each made up of three Fellows in Training (FITs) – as they test their clinical knowledge during the FIT Jeopardy sessions at ACC Asia 2024!

FIT Jeopardy is a friendly competition that promotes a healthy rivalry between ACC international chapters, fosters FIT engagement within the chapters, and provides educational value to the contestants and audience. Participants will be quizzed on a variety of topics ranging from imaging, prevention, and interventional cardiology in an unconventional manner. There will be a panel of judges and chairs to moderate the competition.

Three ACC Asia chapter teams will compete at ACC Asia 2024 and the winning team will compete at the ACC.25 competition in Chicago, Illinois in March 2025!
