Welcome to ACC's Medical Student Member Community Page!

Welcome to the American College of Cardiology's Medical Student Member Community webpage! Our community was founded in 2020 with the goal of connecting the ACC Medical Student Members and providing them with resources and opportunities to engage with the field of cardiology. Our group now includes over 2,000 medical student members from all around the world who use our platform and resources to engage with each other and with the medical community.

Our group aims to further develop the cardiology pipeline, with an emphasis on professional development and diversity and inclusion for medical students interested in cardiology. On this webpage, we share a variety of projects, including perspective pieces written by members around the world, interviews with renowned faculty and researchers in cardiology, and resources and initiatives to highlight the activities of our members and to broaden interest in the diverse field of cardiology.

There are several ways you can get involved with the ACC medical student community!

  1. Consider submitting a Perspective Piece, Interview Article, or a nomination for a Member Spotlight which could be featured on our website.
  2. Engage in discussions and stay up to date with group activities on Twitter with the hashtag #ACCMedStudent
  3. Start a Cardiology Interest Group at your school! Find our Cardiology Interest Group database and resources on starting such a group here.
