ACC Will Co-Sponsor TCT Symposium in 2011

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) will be a co-sponsor of the TCT Symposium in 2011, the ACC and the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) announced on Thursday. The arrangement will deepen the existing relationship between the two organizations, which already collaborate on the Innovations in Interventions (i2) Summit at ACC’s Annual Scientific Sessions.

In a blog post, incoming ACC president David Holmes wrote:

“Today’s announcement means the two groups will work together on a partnership that involves sharing content and distribution of educational materials. The ACC and CRF will form a physician-led ‘Collaborative Council’ of senior physician leaders that will meet regularly to review progress towards established objectives and to set the strategic direction of the affiliation. ACC and CRF staff will also meet regularly to share best practices, consider joint procurement of vendors, consider reciprocal exposition space at annual meetings, and explore collaboration around industry training programs.”
