ACC: Not a Straightforward Science Meeting
Several Cardiology Fellows who are attending ACC.12 this week are blogging together on CardioExchange. The Fellows include Tariq Ahmad, Bill Cornwell, Megan Coylewright, Jeremiah Depta, and John Ryan (moderator). Read the previous post here. Read the next post here.
My two posters are done, and now on to a full day of sessions.
One of the great things about presenting a poster is meeting the other folks in your section — mine is Outcomes Research. The relationships were formed over the shared experience of putting up the bulky evidence of our hard work, and the expression of heartfelt interest is very welcome.
Fun to read Sandeep’s health policy piece. There are such diverse offerings at ACC — which I had traditionally viewed as a straightforward science meeting — that there is truly something for everyone. The education component is particularly strong this year, thanks to Dr. Nishimura and Dr. O’Gara.
Starting at noon, I’ll be interviewing fellows for the ACC FIT blog. The push to get us involved this year seems to have paid off, as there is a big fellow presence. Fellows’ Bootcamps today are packed. Get there early for a seat.
