We are dedicated to establishing collaborations across the heart team to ensure highest quality care for CV patients.

In our inaugural year, the Section leadership is looking at potential partnerships across relevant ACC Member Sections to establish mutually beneficial collaborations between cardiologists and our members. Additionally, the Cardiac Surgery Team Section will support ACC and its educational, quality and advocacy partnerships with national surgeons societies including AATS and STS.
