Welcome to the home of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) Argentina Chapter.

The ACC Argentina Chapter started its activities in 2013, with the participation of the two major cardiovascular organizations in the Country, FAC (Federación Argentina de Cardiología) and SAC (Sociedad Argentina de Cardiología). As an agreement between the two societies, Governors of this chapter are alternative members of each organization. A Joint Session ACC-FAC-SAC is organized in each of the respective Annual Meetings. In addition, other scientific activities in the cardiovascular field are frequently taking place at the national level.
