Young Acute Cardiovascular Care Community

 What is YAC³?

YAC³ (Young Acute Cardiovascular Care Community) is the community for all healthcare professionals active in the field of acute cardiovascular care that are under the age of 40. YAC³ is part of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA).

Why a Young Acute Cardiovascular Care Community?

The next generation of experts in the field of acute cardiovascular care will, undoubtedly, shape the future of research, education and training in a way we have never seen before.
As the subspecialty grows, and becomes increasingly the area where the most exciting and challenging developments in cardiology emerge, development of a highly structured, inclusive and empowered young community is vital. ACCA is committed to building a thriving network that not only provides real opportunities for young ACCA members to work alongside key opinion leaders in the field, but also in using their knowledge and expertise in shaping the future of the specialty, to the benefit of our patients across the whole of Europe and beyond

What are the YAC³ aims?

More than 55 % of ACCA members are below 40 year old, and amongst these 30 % are below 30 years old.

The YAC³ addresses specific needs by creating a community of young cardiologists to:

  • Promote excellence in acute cardiovascular care
  • Introduce cardiologists to the potential and the opportunities within the subspecialty
  • Support acute cardiac care cardiologists in their career development
  • Encourage, facilitate networking and the sharing of ideas
