Welcome to the Adult Congenital and Pediatric Cardiology Section.

On behalf of the ACPC leadership council, I extend a warm welcome to all our existing and new section members. I am pleased to update you on the exciting initiatives within our section that enhance the value we bring to our members. Our leadership council and workgroup chairs work diligently to ensure that our section initiatives encompassing education, quality, advocacy, diversity and innovation resonate deeply with each of you. In addition, we collaborate with other sections within ACC as well as other societies to better each other's expertise in improving care for patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). In line with our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we have been actively working towards broadening representation within our workgroups and taskforces. We encourage the involvement of trainees and early-career members with an overarching goal of shaping future leaders in our field.

Our commitment to advocacy for our patients and section members remains steadfast under the leadership of Devyani Chowdhury, MBBS, FACC, and Ken Shaffer, MD, FACC. Members of this workgroup are highly engaged with stakeholders within ACC, other professional organizations, and policymakers to work on issues such as prior authorization, healthcare disparities, surgical outcomes, diversity within our workforce and advocacy for targeted funding for CHD-related research. In addition, this workgroup organizes CHD-related activities at the annual ACC Legislative Conference and represents us at the Hill. Read more >>>

Take the Pediatric Echo Survey to Advance the Field

March 18, 2024


MedAxiom has developed a confidential survey to identify trends in staffing levels, roles and compensation related to pediatric echo studies across the U.S. If your program (whether its focus is pediatric or adult congenital heart disease) offers pediatric echo studies, please have your echo department leader take five to 10 minutes to complete the survey. You can preview the survey questions, save your answers, and submit a survey response more than once for your program. By sharing your experiences, you will receive access to the benchmarking report and contribute to the collective knowledge that advances pediatric cardiac sonography. Take the survey here.
