The American Heart Association’s Cardiology Fellows Society of Greater Boston
founded in 2012 by George Philippides, MD and Stephanie Moore, MD
Over 11 ACGME programs in the greater Boston area participate
- To foster a community among cardiology fellows in the greater Boston area
- To offer a forum to address educational and clinical issues specifically targeted to cardiology fellows
- To provide opportunities for public speaking through advocacy and community service and outreach
- To involve young physicians early on in their careers with the American Heart Association
Several programs are held throughout the year that provide an opportunity for Cardiology fellows from around the region to come together, network, and learn from each other. In bringing everyone together, we seek to capitalize on the rich Cardiology community that exists in the greater Boston area to take advantage of the expertise, mentorship, and learning opportunities that exist.
