Future Leaders: The Next Generation of Nuclear Cardiology

This is an exclusive program for general cardiology fellows with an interest in cardiovascular imaging and nuclear cardiology. The Future Leaders: The Next Generation of Nuclear Cardiology symposium will take place in a virtual format on Friday, November 5, 2021. Participation is free; however, interested individuals must submit a brief application for selection. 

Applications for 2021 are now closed.
Thank you to everyone who submitted an application.


To demonstrate its commitment to the future, the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology Board of Directors welcomes applications to participate in the 2021 Future Leaders: The Next Generation of Nuclear Cardiology symposium. The ASNC leadership is dedicated to inspiring and supporting cardiology fellows considering a career in cardiac imaging and particularly those with a focus on nuclear cardiology. 
This exciting program will bring together cardiology fellows with a strong interest in multi-modality cardiovascular imaging to trailblazers and thought leaders in the field. Among the program luminaries who will share inspiration from their own journeys are Marcelo Di Carli, MD, MASNC (Harvard Medical School), Prem Soman, MD, PhD, MASNC (University of Pittsburgh), and Randall Thompson, MD, FASNC (Saint Luke’s Health System). Together with other prominent leaders, they will present perspectives and advice from their career experiences. Question and Answer Roundtables and small group Breakout Sessions have been designed to foster personal interaction between participants and faculty.

Featured topics include –

  • Building an academic career
  • Connecting with mentors
  • Developing leadership skills and resilience
  • Achieving work-life balance
  • Transitioning from fellowship to faculty
  • Becoming a key opinion leader
