Mexico ChapterThe ACC's Mexico Chapter was founded in 2011. At that moment, one of the biggest challenges was to unify all Mexican cardiologists and encourage them to participate in more academic meetings and programs.

The main feature of the ACC Mexico Chapter is now present in academic life and linked to the promotion of scientific events of cardiovascular medicine in Mexico. The cardiologists now have guaranteed academic support from the chapter. The approach of the ACC Chapter to FIT and Cardiology Residents in Mexico uses several events, programs, courses and opportunities of participation so that the FITs can develop their careers over time. The fact that there are so many FITs and Cardiology Residents in Mexico is a huge accomplishment for the ACC Mexico Chapter, and we look forward to seeing it grow even more in the future to become one of the most prestigious associations in the world.
