The Maryland Chapter is committed to providing resources, mentoring, network, and educational forums for FITs. See below for what the chapter is currently offering and get involved.
As part of the Mid-Atlantic Capital Cardiology Symposium (MACCS) held at Heart House the weekend prior to Thanksgiving the chapter hosts the FIT Forum. This educational event focuses on non-clinical competencies; things you aren’t going to learn on a daily basis in training. Join other FITs from around the Mid-Atlantic to learn about personal finance, work-life balance, and negotiation among other topics.
Everyone loves FIT Jeopardy! The MDACC team competes at the MACCS meeting in two ways: Hopkins and Maryland and the Military Services go head-to-head for a slot at the ACC Annual Scientific Session as the prize. Once that is figured out, Virginia, Delaware and the best of Maryland compete for the MACCS prize. It's a special way to represent.
Each spring the Chapter hosts a reception at a local restaurant for all FITs to celebrate the graduation of the third and fourth year FITs and also to let them know that ACC is their cardiovascular home for life. Information is posted on this page about the date as it gets closer.
ACC LEGISLATIVE CONFERENCE
The ACC Legislative Conference is held every fall in Washington, DC. This conference brings together members from every state to advocate on Capitol Hill for laws that will improved cardiology practice and have positive impacts on patient lives. Issues are briefed and all attendees spend a day on 'the Hill' meeting with their lawmakers. MDACC sponsors travel stipends for a limited number of FITs. Click here to learn more about the conference. Contact Jennifer Ray Beckman (email@example.com) if interested in the travel stipend.
You’ll receive complimentary membership in the ACC through your training director, who will submit your information to Heart House. Once Heart House has your information you will automatically be a member of the Maryland Chapter, ACC for the duration of your training.
