New CV Board Initiative Moving Forward

Efforts by the ACC, American Heart Association, Heart Failure Society of America, Heart Rhythm Society, and Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions to create a new, independent Board of Cardiovascular Medicine under the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) continue to move forward.

During a dedicated joint-society session at ACC.24, leaders from all five societies shared the progress that has been made to date, including the formal submission of the application to ABMS and the creation of a Board of Directors that will be responsible for leading the new Board if approved. To date, 10 directors have been named, with five additional directors expected in the coming weeks.

Additionally, the societies noted that a 90-day open comment period will be part of the application process, providing an important opportunity for cardiovascular clinicians and other stakeholders to provide their feedback and indicate their support for the new Board.

The initial Directors include:

  • Mark H. Drazner, MD
  • Peter L. Duffy, MD
  • David P. Faxon, MD
  • Edward T. A. Fry, MD
  • Judith S. Hochman, MD
  • Jodie L. Hurwitz, MD
  • Michelle Maya Kittleson, MD
  • Daniel M. Kolansky, MD
  • Jeffrey T. Kuvin, MD
  • Gregory F. Michaud, MD

Visit CVBoard.org to learn more about the new Board of Directors and how to participate in the open comment period. A recording of the ACC.24 session is also available on the site, as well as other on-demand sessions and answers to frequently asked questions.
