Nuclear Cardiology for Fellows-in-Training


Come and be a part of an exclusive program tailored specifically for Fellows-in-Training in Atlanta, GA on April 5, 2024.

This year, the ASNC FIT program is introducing an exciting new meeting format.
During the 5-hour session, fellow case presentations will be expertly framed to provide comprehensive perspectives. Attendees will actively participate in dynamic, fast-paced interactive case presentations specifically designed "for FITs by FITs."

The program is thoughtfully divided into five sections, each addressing key aspects of imaging encountered during nuclear cardiology training. Fellows will present cases to both field experts and their peers, fostering in-depth discussions. Additionally, concise didactic presentations will establish key teaching points in the five program areas. This innovative format is tailored to enhance FITs' engagement in the program, allowing them to focus on the issues most crucial to their ongoing development.


Those who will be attending ACC.24 are strongly encouraged to join us, however, you do not have to be registered for ACC.24 to attend this complimentary program.
