Dear Incoming Cardiology Fellows-in-Training (FITs),


You are about to embark on the ride of a lifetime – training in this great field is exciting, challenging and rewarding, and will open your eyes to the incredible breadth of cardiovascular medicine. And all along the way, we in the ACC FIT Leadership Council aim to be your go-to source for information and updates on all things relevant to life as a fellow.

Throughout your time as a cardiology FIT, you can expect a monthly email containing the ACC On-Call for FITs newsletter, which is jam-packed with content created by FITs, for FITs. You will find content in several areas of interest, including legislation and advocacy, reviews of recent meetings, financial advice, diversity and inclusion, medical education, and advice on managing the crucial transition from fellowship to your first job.

Keep an eye out for our recurring series "Conversations with Cardiologists," which features fellow-led interviews with prominent cardiologists, as well our Spotlight series, in which we highlight the accomplishments of innovative and impactful fellows, mentors and programs across the world.

We will also continue to bring insights from the Chief Fellow Network, which is designed to allow chief fellows everywhere to share ideas and improve cardiology training for all of us. You can check out prior editions of the newsletter and even more FIT-relevant content at

But perhaps most importantly, we need your input. What content do you want to see? Want your piece highlighted in the newsletter? Want to get involved with the ACC? Then get in touch – you can email us at or message me personally on Twitter – @SerfasJ.

Looking forward to a great year,

J.D. Serfas, MD
Adult Congenital Heart Disease FIT at Duke University in Durham, NC, and editor-in-chief of the ACC On-Call for FITs newsletter
