Fellowship is one of the most distinguished designations the College offers its members, and is the ultimate recognition of professional achievement.
Based on outstanding credentials, achievements and community contributions to cardiovascular medicine, those who are elected to Fellowship signal to peers and patients their commitment to quality cardiovascular care through use of the FACC designation. Fellows of the ACC come from all specialties within cardiology and include adult cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, surgeons, researchers, academicians, specialists in a cardiovascular-related field and cardiovascular team members with advanced degrees.
The strongest evidence of achievement for those who earn the FACC designation comes from the applicant’s peers through letters of sponsorship attesting to their professional competence and commitment to excellence.
Election to Fellowship is determined by committee, and applications are welcomed on a rolling basis.
