My name is Jay Mohan, DO, and I am an interventional cardiologist and associate cardiology program director at Michigan State University McLaren Macomb-Oakland in southeastern Michigan.

After all those years of training, I am finally starting my career as a newly minted attending, and I am proud to be affiliated with one of the most prestigious medical associations in the world as a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC).

Academics, research, advocacy and a lifelong network of colleagues. That is what it means in becoming an FACC. Those four letters carry so much meaning. Since the beginning of my training to the start of my lifelong career, the ACC has been nothing but supportive in helping me achieve my goals.

Whether it be Board materials – like ACCSAP and CathSAP – to a worldwide conference in which the latest developments in cardiology are revealed, the ACC continues to forge the path for our field. In an ever-evolving landscape, the ACC strives to set the standards in cardiology training not only during fellowship but also during your entire career.

As I progress through my journey in cardiovascular disease, I continue to be astonished by the amazing innovations in our field. Cardiology continues to lead the way in regard to technology, collaboration and research. FACCs are at the forefront of this movement.

As an FACC, I will continue the goals set forth by the ACC – putting patient care first and continuing the tradition of research excellence. Overall, I am excited for what the future will bring and to have the ability to share that experience with my colleagues as an FACC.
