The hardest battle I’ve had to face is the one I fight with myself every day. Being in medical school is a substantial feat, and it is one that comes with its own unique challenges.
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.
On this page, to illuminate the profession for trainees interested in cardiology, we curate perspective pieces from medical students and interviews from faculty members as well as shareable resources. We welcome your input and feedback as we train together within the Medical Student Community. You may contact me at email@example.com, our editorial staff firstname.lastname@example.org or ACC staff member, Kimarie Chang, at email@example.com.
Thank you for your time and interest while visiting our webpage.
It is our mission to introduce our peers across the country to the opportunities and philosophies of cardiovascular medicine. We aim to supplement your education with student-focused resources, provide unique networking opportunities, and foster professional growth through your academic endeavors. We support our like-minded medical student members to explore cardiovascular medicine together and inspire the next generation of cardiologists.
Contact Kimarie Chang at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about the group!

My 82-year-old grandmother had been complaining of tiredness for a while but had refused to visit a physician. Once her breathlessness began to wake her up in the middle of the night, she finally agreed. The general physician diagnosed her with heart failure and prescribed a medley of medications.

Student-run free clinics are sponsored, not-for-profit forms of community-level outpatient care. Student volunteers are involved in nearly all aspects of clinic operations while under the supervision of volunteer doctors, pharmacists and other health care professionals. In addition, literature supports the general attitude among student volunteers is that volunteering at these clinics improves their clinical skills holistically.
