Young Acute Cardiovascular Care Community

The Community

The Association for Acute CardioVascular Care (ACVC) recognises the potential and importance of future specialists in acute cardiovascular care and therefore aims to provide them with as much support as possible.

This community is designed for all healthcare professionals active in the field of acute cardiovascular care who are under the age of 40.

We want to share knowledge and skills among young generations, to spread the mission.

Why a young 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 increasingly becomes an exciting area where the most challenging developments in cardiology emerge, development of a highly structured, inclusive and empowered young community is vital.

ACVC is committed to building a thriving network that not only provides real opportunities for young 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.
