Join the ACC
Nurtured by the ACC's team-based approach to cardiovascular care, the Cardiac Care Associate Membership Group (comprised of Physician Assistants, other Advanced Practiced Clinicians, and Allied Health Professionals) has reached over 4,200 members. Since 2003 when this member group was formed, CCAs serve not only on their own committee, but also on over 30 standing ACC Committees including, but not limited to: publications, continuing education, cardiac catheterization and intervention committee, accreditation steering committee, and the heart failure and transplant committee.
Become an Associate of the American College of Cardiology (A.A.C.C.)
The designation recognizes those PAs and other CCAs who, through advanced education, training and professional development, have dedicated themselves to providing the highest-level of cardiovascular care. CCA applicants must meet basic criteria for the designation, and the process for advancement from Cardiac Care Associate to Associate of the American College of Cardiology is similar to the advancement process for physician members obtaining Fellowship of the American College of Cardiology designation.
