Welcome to ACC's Medical Student Member Community Page!

Welcome to the American College of Cardiology Medical Student Membership Community. Since its inception, we have connected with over 2,500 student members from all over the world. We seek to collaborate with, grow alongside and equip aspiring cardiologists with effective skills to utilize along the journey.

On this webpage, we share numerous student driven projects, including the work of our dynamic cardiovascular research team, monthly journal club meetings with clinical trials reviews, perspective pieces, educational interviews, webinars and more. We partner with and receive mentorship from renowned clinicians, faculty and researchers within the field of cardiology.

We recognize and value the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in the healthcare field and therefore desire to expand our reach to students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in medicine in hopes to strengthen the cardiology pipeline. We welcome mentors and faculty from similar backgrounds to partner with us on this mission.
