Welcome to ACC's Medical Student Interest Group Page!

I am thrilled to welcome you to the webpage of the Medical Student Leadership Group. Under the auspices of the ACC, our Leadership Group was founded in 2020 with a charge to develop and guide the ACC Medical Student Community, which has grown to include students of all years across the world. The profession of cardiology remains an attractive field of medicine with new and emerging subspecialties and career paths.

We welcome your input and feedback as we train together within the Medical Student Community. You may contact me at, our editorial staff or ACC staff member, Kimarie Chang, at

Thank you for your time and interest while visiting our webpage.
