The International Early Career Working Group brings together ACC Early Career representatives from around the globe to:
- Better understand the needs of international Early Career members.
- Advocate for international Early Career members within the ACC.
- Promote and sustain career-long involvement with the ACC.
- Foster international academic and clinical collaborations amongst early career and more senior cardiovascular professionals through mentorship.
To meet these goals the Working Group hopes to write a position paper commenting on the challenges faces by Early Career members and ways to increase international early career engagement in the ACC.
The Working Group will consider new ways in which the ACC can support Early Career members, through ACC satellite symposia and events at other national cardiovascular society meetings, sponsorship to promote academic and clinical attachments at world renowned international institutions, promotion of a mentoring scheme with senior FACC and dedicated international Early Career session and faculty involvement at future ACC meetings.
