The ACC Cardiovascular Overview and Board Review Course 2019

COURSE OVERVIEW/STATEMENT OF NEED

To help you prepare for the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Cardiovascular Disease certification exam, the American College of Cardiology (ACC) offers an intensive Board certification review course at which attendees receive a broad and in-depth summary of the cardiovascular disease curriculum. This detailed, comprehensive course follows the ABIM examination blueprint and emphasizes pathogenesis, pathophysiology, natural history, epidemiology and evidence-based guidelines for diagnostic assessment and clinical management.

This course includes exam-oriented lectures delivered by expert faculty members, case-based reviews, online practice exam questions for general cardiology, electrophysiology and electrocardiography, as well as an audience response system that allows you to compare answers with peers and faculty experts. By the course's end, participants have the tools and knowledge necessary to analyze Board-style questions and prepare for the exam.

Attendees not planning to take the Board exam will find the curriculum serves as a thorough review of general cardiology.

Additional Optional Learning Opportunities

  • Online access to 100's of additional study questions
  • Optional evening case-based session
