Welcome to the Academic Cardiology Section!

To my Fellow Colleagues in Academic Cardiology,

As a clinical cardiologist practicing at an academic medical center, I am constantly challenged by the importance of providing knowledgeable, thoughtful and compassionate care to my patients, while managing my other "non-clinical" responsibilities.

For me, my non-clinical duties, include an array of work spanning the academic milieu including administrative and quality improvement work for the catheterization laboratory, teaching rounds, overseeing a busy Cardiology Fellowship Program, working with Cardiology specialty societies, and attempting to edit, comment, review or write manuscripts. (The latter usually happens during the "very off hours" of my day).

The Academic Section Leadership Council, serves as an additional source for collaboration and mentorship. We aim to support all of our academic cardiology section members to achieve their full potential within the realm of academic medicine.

I am sure that all of us in academic medicine encounter similar challenges and I am comforted by the support and collaboration I get from my colleagues to help advance my knowledge and skills, and to advance my career in academic medicine.

The Academic Section Leadership Council, serves as an additional source for collaboration and mentorship. We aim to support all of our academic cardiology section members to achieve their full potential within the realm of academic medicine.

Whether you are an NIH funded researcher, a member of the cardiology administration for your hospital, a clinical trial investigator, a graduate medical educator, or involved in other ways in academic medicine, our goal is to provide you with the tools you will need to be a success.

Our work groups are designed to educate and inform our members on various issues important to all of us in academic medicine and to provide our members with an opportunity to get involved with some of the college's activities that center on academic medicine.

Additionally, we provide regular educational activities focusing on key issues related to professional development for all academic cardiologists.

As you can see, there is a lot of movement and excitement surrounding the Academic Section Leadership Council.

As chair, I want to emphasize once more that our goal is to support you in advancing your career in academic medicine.

I would love to hear from you, so please reach out should you have any questions or if you wish to get involved.

If you happen to see me in person, please do stop by to say hello. I would love to meet with you and hear your ideas.

Thank you for your involvement and good luck with your career.

Jacqueline Tamis Holland, MD, FACC
